Rebecca is the recipient of the Coro Nuovo Young Musician of the Year 2018, and in 2022 was made an ambassador of the competition which seeks to support young musicians from Sussex. At the RCM she won the 2020 Brooks-van der Pump English Song Competition and received the Audience Prize for the 2019 Maureen Lehane Vocal Awards at the Wigmore Hall.

Rebecca is a keen early music soloist and recently stepped in for Bach's St. John Passion both with the OAE, lead by Mark Padmore at Het Concertgebouw, Amsterdam and the City of London Sinfonia alongside Joanne Lunn and Roderick Williams. This summer she made her Wigmore Hall concert debut with Arcangelo conducted by Jonathan Cohen. In 2023/24 Rebecca will be one of eight singers on Le Jardin des Voix, the young artist programme of Les Arts Florissants, performing Purcell’s ‘The Fairy Queen’ with William Christie and Paul Agnew.

Song is also high on the agenda for Rebecca and in recent years she has given recitals for both the Lewes Song Festival and London Song Festival. This autumn, she will give a joint recital for the Thames Concert Series with countertenor Hugh Cutting and in the spring she’ll partake in a joint recital with Brindley Sherratt for the Ludlow Festival accompanied by Iain Burnside.
