Rebecca recently founded the Roubidoux Chamber Players which is a community chamber music initiative dedicated to bringing music to Pulaski County, Missouri.

The musicians are retired, amateur and professional woodwind and string players. Rebecca also performs as a violinist for her wedding music service: Strings on Route 66.

Rebecca also collaborates with local libraries and schools in South Central Missouri to help bring educational music programs for students and music enthusiasts of all ages to enjoy. Most recently, Rebecca worked with the Rolla Public Library (Rolla, Missouri) to bring music to their storytime hour.
