Rebecca Landell Reed enjoys a varied career performing on multiple instruments and playing music from the Renaissance to the 21st century. Although her Bachelor and Master degrees focused on cello performance, she became interested in viola da gamba and baroque cello while studying at Oberlin Conservatory with Darrett Adkins. She developed her early music skills with Catharina Meints and with Michael and Maria Brüssing in the Czech Republic. While at Rice University studying with Norman Fischer, she connected with the Crumhorn Collective, an eclectic outreach band of Renaissance multi-instrumentalists. Through outreach and acting coaching, she continued to push her boundaries to include staged productions, like her participation with Studio Theatre’s rendition of "An Iliad". Ms. Reed enjoys finding new ways of using music to enrich her local community. She currently lives in the Cleveland area teaching private lessons and performing with the Akron Symphony and Apollo’s Fire.
