Rebecca Larkin writes music that portrays a sense of temporal ambiguity and is reminiscent of fantasy themes. Inspired by soundtrack and concert styles, she writes and arranges chamber and orchestral music for ensembles including the Central Ohio Symphony and Ohio Wesleyan University (OWU) Chamber Orchestra.
Rebecca has participated in the Fresh Inc Festival and the University of Cincinnati’s Summer Undergraduate Mentored Research Program (SUMR-UC) and currently interns as an online composition mentor with Music-COMP, a Vermont based non-profit that coaches students ages elementary through high school in composition with the goal of live performance. Her song cycle, Portals was recently named a finalist for the ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer awards.
Also a performer, Rebecca specializes in flute and piccolo and was a featured piccolo soloist with the OWU Chamber Orchestra on their fall 2013 concert. She is a graduate of OWU where she received a B.M. in Flute Performance, magna cum laude, and studied flute with Nancy Gamso. She also studied composition at OWU with Jennifer Jolley and Clint Needham. Beginning in the fall of 2014, she will begin her M.M. in Composition at the University of Oregon.
In addition to her music studies, Rebecca completed a minor in East Asian Studies at OWU and visited Japan in 2012. Her research interests include traditional Japanese music, scoring for media, and collaborating with dance.
