Rebecca began her classical training at age fifteen on violin, piano, and voice. She continued her studies throughout high school, with a focus on vocal performance and operatic arts. She received a full scholarship to continue her musical studies at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell. Rebecca pursued a double major in Vocal Performance and Music Education, with a minor in Language Studies, and graduated Summa Cum Laude. As a soloist, Rebecca has performed regularly in weekly student and community recitals, and has participated in numerous vocal competitions, including NATS. Operatically, she has served in several leading roles, such as the Countess in Mozart's "Le Nozze di Figaro", Cunegonde in Bernstein's "Candide", and Rosalinda in Strauss's "Die Fledermaus". In 2012, Rebecca was selected to perform in a full touring production of Mozart's, "Die Zauberflöte" with the Lyric Opera Studio, Weimar, as Zweite Dame and Knabe. She studied and lived in Weimar, Germany for over a month, both touring and performing nightly for the German public. Other notable operatic achievements include being selected in 2010 and 2011 as one of twenty vocalists to study Opera in Verona, Italy as part of Opera Viva!, a comprehensive and exclusive program for operatic performance. Rebecca studied and performed there with vocal coach Joyce Fieldsend, and with famous lyric soprano, June Anderson. For the past six years, Rebecca has been teaching in the Greater Merrimack area, creating and educating through Community Theater programs and productions, young artist acting, Shakespeare, and self-esteem workshops. In 2011, she joined the New England Treble Chorus as a Music Theory instructor and is thrilled to continue on this year as TCNE's new Opera director. She is also a professional soloist for the Merrimack and Boston areas.
