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. She has performed across the U.S. as well as in Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, and Australia. Additionally, she's had the pleasure of singing in such notable establishments as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and the Sydney Opera House. Past operatic highlights include Contessa in Le Nozze di Figaro, Manon in Manon, and The Jazz Singer/Lee Miller in the world premiere of Tabula Rasa (Jarrar/ Goodwin).
As an educator and voice coach, Rebecca helps highly skilled singers transform their relationship with their voices and forge utterly new pathways, resulting in the deepest understanding of the voice... and themselves. Her keen observational skills allow her to help facilitate transformational results in her clients from day one. Most recently, she designed a supercharged coaching container program consisting of an amalgam of principles drawn from (but not limited to) the Alexander Technique, skilled performance practices, holistic use of the voice, and over a decade of teaching experience.
Rebecca periodically contributes articles to several music education-based institutions, such as TakeLessons, Musika, and Modern Singer. In 2018, she 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.
