Rebecca Jackson





Hailed as “riveting” by The San Francisco Examiner, Korean-American violinist Rebecca Jackson is a native of California. Her performances are characterized by a “fierce spirit and… reckless abandon.” An avid chamber musician, Ms. Jackson is founder and artistic director of “Music in May,” in Santa Cruz, California, an annual festival building community through chamber music. The series has featured such noted musicians as Michael Tree, Shmuel Ashkenasi, and Ron Leonard.  She is member of Ensemble San Francisco, a collective of nine of the Bay Area’s best chamber musicians whose contagious enthusiasm invites new audiences to fall in love with classical music. She is a member of the Sarasota Opera Orchestra, Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music, and regularly performs with the San Francisco Opera and Ballet.

Always looking for a good cause, Ms. Jackson has performed in numerous benefit concerts that have raised a total exceeding $100,000. Combining her passion for music and service, she is co-founder of Sound Impact, musicians united in a movement dedicated to serving communities and igniting change through live performance. In addition to classical she has performed with Barbara Streisand and at the Latin Grammy Awards. An advocate of exploring interdisciplinary art forms, Rebecca has worked with poets, dancers, painters, filmmakers, and writers.  Ms. Jackson’s acting and original composition was featured in April 2010 at Exit Theater (San Francisco) in the production, The Wind and Rain. Ms. Jackson received her B.M. from The Juilliard School and a graduate degree from UC Santa Cruz.
