Originally from Alberta, Rebecca McClure began her singing career at a very young age, crooning cowboy songs while accompanied by her dad on guitar and harmonica. The youngest of five children, she frequently performed in religious venues with her parents and sisters, learning how to harmonize by ear by age 7.
At one point in her mid-teens, she traded off piano lessons for voice lessons and fell in love with classical repertoire and solo singing.
In university, Rebecca continued with piano, even though her academic studies were primarily focussed on sciences and humanities, and she taught piano as she worked through the advanced RCM material.
She moved to the West Coast in the mid-90’s to attend graduate school at UBC. Since then, through private voice lessons and participation in different choral opportunities, Rebecca has managed to keep music a big part of her life while juggling family, career, and other artistic pursuits.
Currently studying voice with Ingrid Attrot at the VCM and also singing with CapriCCio Vocal Ensemble, Rebecca is thrilled to add this exciting Winterreise Project to her roster of musical activities.
