Rebecca Oswald

Eugene, OR

If music is the language of the emotions, Rebecca Oswald is at once fluent and articulate, intimate and inspiring. And if beautiful music has the power to heal the world, one heart at a time, Rebecca’s songs are indeed a potent elixir for peace. From thoughtful and introspective to shining and exuberant, her music paints enchanting pictures, tells evocative stories, and takes the listener on marvelous inner journeys.

Rebecca Oswald is an award-winning composer with many areas of experience and excellence. In 1998 Rebecca earned her BMus in Music Theory and Composition, summa cum laude, from Westminster Choir College of Rider University. In 2001 she earned her MM in Composition from the University of Oregon School of Music.

In 2005 Rebecca released “October Wind,” a retrospective CD of thirteen original piano works dating from 1981 to 2005, and one art song for tenor and piano. IndieAcoustic selected track 10, Periwinkle Blue, on her October Wind CD as one of their “Songs of Note 2005.” And in July 2009, track 7, Regatta, from her October Wind CD was nominated for a 2009 Just Plain Folks Song Award in their Solo Piano category. Rebecca has played her solo piano music for audiences all over the U.S. as well as in Canada, the U.K., France, Dominican Republic, and Spain.

In March 2010 Rebecca traveled to Olomouc, Czech Republic, where the Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra recorded two of her orchestral works: Finding the Murray River (six minutes, for full orchestra), and Sleep, Child (five minutes, for string orchestra). These two works, produced by PARMA Recordings, will be released on separate CDs in winter 2011 on the Navona label.
