Lorenza Ponce has played violin with the best of them – and by “them” we mean Bon Jovi, Sheryl Crow, Ben Folds and Thriving Ivory, just to name a few.  Stepping out on her own, about a year ago Lorenza debuted her album Soul Shifter which she described as “a style change from the classical training and new age music of my past, while incorporating the ‘graduate degree’ I have earned at the school of rock star employers and mentors.” She was able to put her graduate degree of rock to good use when she opened for Bon Jovi on their Mohegan Sun tour stop recently.  Check out our gallery from her set below and find out more about Lorenza on her official website here.
