Rebecca Kleinmann, internationally beloved flutist and singer, enjoys a diverse and rich musical career. Originially from North Carolina, she grew up simultaneously trained in Classical Music and learning by heart in the gospel church. After graduating from the acclaimed Indiana University School of Music in Jazz Studies under David Baker, she went on to explore and immerse herself in the cultures of the music she felt drawn to: spending time in Spain, NYC, Ireland, Argentina, and especially Brazil. Constantly deepening her affinity with Brazilian music, she has collaborated and shared stages with greats including Hermeto Pascoal, Airto Moreira, Toninho Horta, and Jovino Santos Neto.
Rebecca has graced stages including the SF Jazz Center, Healdsburg Jazz Festival, the San Jose Jazz Festival, Yoshi's and tours internationally. She has recorded two solo albums "Raio de Sol" and "Intuição Verdadeira," a collaboration "Brasiliense" with guitarist Ian Faquini, and participated on dozens of albums and sound tracks. She collaborates with great local musicians including harpist Destiny Muhammad and Grupo Falso Baiano. Vocally, she sings with the Taylor Memorial Choir, and studies with Fabiana Cozza. Currently based in Oakland, CA, she balances her performance life with work in music education, leading her private studio, the Silvertones flute choir, and teaching young children in public schools via the organization Cantare con Vivo as a fully certified Orff instructor.
