Rebecca Lodge Birkebaek

Rebecca is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music, where she studied singing and piano. During her time at the RAM, she received many prizes, including the Lloyds Bank Scholarship for postgraduate study, which enabled her to complete her studies on the Opera Course.

Her career over the last 25 years as soloist, former member of the BBC Singers (the United Kingdom’s only full- time, professional chamber choir),  former staff member of the Chorus of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, choral conductor, educator and workshop leader has given her a wealth of experience. Equally at home performing on stage, in the recording studio or broadcasting on television and radio she brings energy, fun and commitment to all her projects.

Rebecca has a great passion for music education, encouraging and inspiring people of all ages and abilities to improve their singing through choral workshops, leading sessions for the BBC Performing Groups, the Kings’ Singers, and Berkshire Maestros amongst many others. As conductor of several choirs, including the Intermediate Choir of the Finchley Children’s Music Group, Rebecca is delighted to be leading ‘Sing It Out’, Rye’s newest choral experience!
