Rebecca Broberg’s body of work includes an impressive list of CDs and a DVD, where her emotional intensity and commitment to the text in operatic and recital can be felt immediately. Her repertoire experience has encompassed the medieval until now, with major points of interest including Barbara Strozzi, Gabriel Fauré, Wagner father and son, and contemporary composers such as Wolfram Graf and Uwe Strübing.
Major influences on her development as a musician have included the advice and guidance of Mary Anne Ballard and Peter P. Pachl.
Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Rebecca Broberg played the flute and piano, sang in the chorus and participated in the bell choir at school. After private voice studies with Robert Grooters, Rebecca Broberg majored in music at the University of Pennsylvania, where she was active in the Collegium Musicum and Baroque Ensemble, under the instruction of Mary Anne Ballard, Alexander Blachly and Webb Wiggins. She then studied voice at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore with Helen Boatwright and Stanley Cornett, and minored in viola da gamba. A twist of fate and an adventurous bent brought her to Germany, where chance occurrences along with a pursuit to know the unknown have led to the following recordings, excerpts of which have been broadcast on radio internationally.
