Rebecca Richardson is a multifaceted music professional working in the fields of performance, coaching, and education.
Praised for her “sumptuous lyricism” (Operawire), soprano Rebecca Richardson is known for interpreting a wide range of classical works, from early opera to world premieres. Recent performance highlights include Contessa in Le Nozze di Figaro, Miss Wordsworth in Albert Herring, and The Jazz Singer/ Lee Miller in the world premiere of Tabula Rasa (Jarrar/ Goodwin). Beyond the sphere of operatic repertoire, Rebecca is a sought-after recitalist and interpreter of concert works. Most recently, she self-produced and sang a concert called, Will Sing for Wine… Live!, featuring a program of “old world” art songs and arias paired with wines from France, Italy, and Spain.
As a voice coach, Rebecca helps professional singers and speakers master fluency and ease in their performing through optimal coordination. Her keen observational skills allow her to help facilitate transformational results in her clients from day one. Rebecca’s coaching method synthesizes principles from the Alexander Technique, elite performance practices, holistic use of the voice, and over a decade of teaching experience. This work transcends the performance sphere and encourages clients to approach any activity with curiosity and conscious thought.
As a writer and educator, Rebecca has contributed articles to several education and wellness-based institutions, such as TakeLessons, Musika, Modern Singer, and The Maps Institute. Her writing style is known for its levity and accessibility, like sitting down for a chat with a good friend. In 2018, Rebecca created her own writing space - a blog called, Will Sing for Wine. The blog offers resources and inspiration for the music lover and creative thinker, and its primary aim is to help bridge the gap between classical music lovers and those less familiar with the art form.
A native of Southern California, Rebecca currently resides in Portland, Oregon with her husband and baby daughter.
