Rebecca Burman – violinist

Rebecca Burman

Rebecca has played with all of the UK’s leading period instrument orchestras, spending the majority of her long career as a principal player with the Academy of Ancient Music. She is a current member of the Dunedin Consort and now also the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.
As well as a musician, Rebecca is a visual artist (using the name Rebecca J Burman), teaches, works at the Cambridge Junction with young people with complex needs, and is a facilitator for the international initiative Mothers Who Make – a peer support group for all those balancing the dual roles of mother and maker.
Alongside this, she writes a blog about living with chronic illness, mental health, and visual art, which can be found at rebeccajburman.com

What has creating art meant to you over the last year?

Having my visual art practice has been crucial to me over not just the past year, but since mid-2019, when I was forced to stop work due to needing major surgery for chronic illness – I was just ready to go back to work when Covid hit.
For me having a creative output is not just ‘nice’ or ‘lucky’, I think it’s an innate need, and so I class myself as fortunate to have been able to find another way to express myself in light of the complete decimation of the music world in the past year.
