Ashley Blomeyer Events Manager

Ashley is from Birmingham and earned her degree in Elementary Education and English from the University of Mississippi. She joined the ASO from the Birmingham Museum of Art and always makes our Maestro's Ball an event to remember. Although she doesn't play an instrument now, she took piano lessons until 3rd grade and wishes her parents had made her stick with it! When she's not planning events with the Symphony, Ashley enjoys reading, being with her four boys and exercising. She truly loves the arts and considers working with the ASO a way to support their presence in Alabama.
