She worked as contributing writer for Syracuse’s daily newspaper, The Post Standard, and writes reviews for the international online magazine Music and Vision. She is a board member of Syracuse Friends of Chamber Music and has blogged for Syracuse Opera.

A graduate of Brown University in music and comparative literature, Rebecca undertook a research project on the recording industry for Universal Music Classical Management and Productions last year.
