With a variety of commercial, pit, orchestral, and chamber music experience, trumpeter Rebecca Steinberg has a career marked as much by variety and versatility as her effortless, warm sound. She is currently a member of the trumpet section behind American Idol finalist Kimberley Locke, her variety of commercial engagements include Adele’s Radio City Music Hall Special on NBC, performing with The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and appearing on-screen in the Emmy-winning television series Mozart in the Jungle.
Rebecca particularly enjoys her work in New York City’s many Off-Broadway productions, including with the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene, where she has appeared as in the production of Fiddler on the Roof (and in the 2018 cast album dist. Warner Music Group), the Drama Desk nominated production of Di Goldene Kale (The Golden Bride), and in the 2019 restoration of The Sorceress. In the contemporary music scene, Rebecca proudly performs with Mimesis Ensemble, Contemporaneous, and Metropolis Ensemble, while as an orchestral musician she regularly appears with a broad swath of New York City’s most interesting ensembles and orchestras.
Rebecca’s most passionate and impactful work comes with Calliope Brass, her quintet who collaborates with the world’s most prominent creatives to build evocative, story-driven concert experiences, with its projects including collaborations with composers David Maslanka and David Sampson, and artistic minds from Hamilton and Sesame Street. As an all-woman ensemble, Calliope also proudly normalizes women as elite brass players, an issue of particular focus for Rebecca.
Rebecca Steinberg holds education from the Manhattan School of Music (B.M.) and attended the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan. She is based in New York City, where she lives with her husband, the trombonist Owen Caprell .
