Ashleigh Robertson first discovered 3MBS when she was invited to perform on Live at the Convent while studying her Honours in Music at Monash in 2009.
As a flute player, she has been lucky enough to tour with the Australian Youth Band and Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra, performing in Italy, China, Malaysia, USA and Canada, at venues including Carnegie Hall, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA.
Aside from performing, Ashleigh has a passion for arts administration. She has worked as an ensemble manager for Melbourne Youth Music, personnel manager for Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra and been on the Australian Youth Band’s committee. Currently, Ashleigh manages the West Melbourne Schools Orchestra, which she co-founded in 2016.
Looking to further her arts administration experience, Ashleigh joined the station as a volunteer in 2013. From starting as a bundler in the music library, Ashleigh has performed many roles across the station, including artist liaison for the marathons, panelling for outside broadcasts and as producer for the Talent.
In 2015 she completed the presenter’s course and began presenting Sunday Night Late. Ashleigh now presents The Romantics on 3MBS digital, which is her favourite music period; she enjoys learning more about this period and plays a combination of favourites and lesser-known composers.
