In 2021, the ensemble will launch – under the new name – several tours, an Erasmus partnership on didactic online practices, and an academy to support young musicians who want to study early music, regardless of the country they live in or their economic situation.

Rebecca performs with numerous chamber music ensembles and orchestras. Currently she is a regular member of the Belgian B’Rock, concertmaster of the Ribatutta ensemble and violinist of the Richter ensemble who recently released their first album of Schoenberg, Webern and Berg string quartets on Passacaille.

Rebecca’s passion also includes contemporary repertoire: she performed with Cepromusic in Mexico City, and is a regular violinist with Modelo 62 in the Netherlands. She is also a regular in the United States and Mexico, with ensembles such as Sarasa in Boston, Ars Lyirca in Houston, and she regularly collaborates with the baroque orchestra of the National University of Mexico City and in Curitiba Brazil at the Oficina Festival.

Rebecca teaches string quartets at the early music department of the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, and teaches an entrepreneurship course for 4th year undergraduate students and pedagogy to baroque violinists.
