She is also the Concertmaster of Bach Akademie Charlotte and has been a Guest Artist-in-Residence with the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra since 2018.

Born in Canada, Aisslinn began playing violin at age three and made her solo debut with the CBC Vancouver Orchestra at age eight.

Victoria Baroque
Now in its thirteenth season, Victoria Baroque presents dynamic, personal and engaging performances of music from the Baroque and Classical periods. The ensemble brings together early music specialists from Vancouver Island and beyond for explorations of chamber, orchestral, vocal, and choral works. Playing on instruments of the 18th century, Victoria Baroque brings audiences closer to the soundworld of the period, embracing the dance-driven rhythmic vitality, as well as the lyrical and conversational aspects of baroque music.

Destination Greater Victoria is honoured to be based on the traditional territory of the Lekwungen-speaking peoples of the Songhees Nation and the Esquimalt Nation, whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.
