With the highest score among musicians from 11 states, she was First Chair when performing with this elite Orchestra in April in Atlantic City. Previously she was accepted into the 2017 New Jersey All State High School Orchestra and served as assistant concertmaster. Rebecca was also one of three Upper School violinists accepted into the New Jersey Music Educators Association All-State Orchestra.
