Rebecca-Huber-concertmeester-Les-Vents-Atlantiques

Rebecca Huber (USA) is a violinist specializing in both early and contemporary music, with an emphasis on classical and romantic repertoire performed on period instruments.  After graduating from the Oberlin Conservatory with a bachelor degree in 2004, she attended the Royal Conservatory of the Netherlands in The Hague.  It was there that she became fascinated with performing orchestral repertoire without a conductor, and for her masters research, she studied 19th-century violinist conductors.

In 2012, Rebecca was invited to join the newly formed conductor-less orchestra “Symphonie Atlantique” as artistic director and concertmaster.  Since then, Symphonie Atlantique has performed at the Caixa Forums in Madrid and Barcelona, in the Dr Anton Philpzaal Den Haag, the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam with Michael Chance and Stefanie True, and as part of the Musica Antica da Camera concert series.  Last season, Symphonie Atlantique also performed their first international tour in Mexico and had their Concertgebouw debut in Amsterdam, performing a semi-staged production of Handel’s “Giulio Cesare”, directed from the violin, in April 2015.

Rebecca also performs with several chamber ensembles and orchestras around the world.  In Europe, she is a member of Modelo 62, a contemporary music ensemble specializing in experimental music. She also works regularly with B’rock in Belgium, Les Passions in Switzerland, and Opera2day in Holland.  She also spends several months of each year in Mexico, and there Rebecca organizes regular workshops for baroque musicians, performs with several chamber ensembles, and recently was named as one of the artistic directors of the San Miguel baroque festival.
