March 19th and 20th, Rebecca joined maestro Guillermo Figueroa and the Lynn Philharmonia for performances of Berlioz’s beloved song set, Les nuits d’ete. The warm breezes were matched by the warm welcome of everyone at Lynn, and made it an experience to cherish! Rebecca is delighted to return next year to sing more Berlioz – this time, his Romeo & Juliet.

Rebecca will be making some exciting debuts this season!

Later in the season, she will join Michael Palmer and the Bellingham Festival Orchestra and Chorus in the season’s final performance of Mozart’s Requiem. Hang on to your hats – it will be a busy spring!
On November 17th, 2014, I will compete with my CU colleagues in the final round of the Ekstrand Competition. Chosen from 40 contestants over 3 rounds, the Ekstrand award is designed to assist graduate students at the music school with professional development. It has been a delight to hear students from all performance disciplines throughout the first 2 stages of the competition, and I am so excited for the finals concert next week!

At the end of a wonderful summer in Crested Butte, Rebecca relocated from Montreal to Boulder, Colorado to accept a performance fellowship at the University of Colorado. Since beginning the program at the end of August, she has stayed busy with auditions, competitions, and lessons (plus a little time for hiking!).
In the winter and spring, she will appear with CU’s Eklund Opera program in the roles of Dorabella in Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte, and Ottone in Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea. It should be an exciting year!
