Rebecca Batista de Almieda

An ebullient musician, Batista de Almeida is a diversely experienced pianist and mezzo-soprano who is constantly searching for new experiences in the music field for improving her skills as a performer and as a teacher.

The Brazilian born musician has been involved in many internationally
renowned festivals, workshops, and master classes and has been awarded several prizes in significant piano competitions. Batista de Almieda is always striving for professional growth and polishing her skills.

As a pianist, Batista de Almieda has performed in several venues and concert series throughout Brazil and USA, and has also been broadcasted on mainstream Brazilian radio.

Having always been passionate about singing, it was not until two years ago that Batista de Almieda decided to pursue training with her current teacher Vàlerie Sorel and coach Eric Trudel. Her leading role debut was with the East Coast Chamber Opera, singing the role of Bradamante in Händel’s Alcina. In November 2016 she made her debut with the CT Lyric Opera performing Fillipevna in Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin.

From singing tours with choirs in Ireland, singing Opera in Italy, to being the Music Director of the Church of the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church and playing organ and piano on Sundays; and from teaching piano in her private studio to accompanying for the Hartt School Community Division, Batista de Almieda finds great joy in sharing musical expression.    

After receiving a cum laude Bachelor’s degree in piano performance from Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Batista de Almeida decided to pursue her Master’s degree in Piano Performance and Pedagogy at The Hartt School where she studied with Luiz de Moura Castro. Her other teachers have included Israeli pianist Prof. Edna Golandsky (founder of the Golandsky Institute), with whom she studied the Taubman Approach. Currently, she is pursuing a second Master’s degree in Choral Conducting at The Hartt School under the tutelage of Edward Bolkovac, DMA.
