Concentrating on music written in the twentieth century or later, Melinda and Anne aim to explore unique works that challenge the status quo and push boundaries of compositional styles. Mezzo soprano Melinda Becker and pianist Anne Rainwater enjoy communicating musically through a wide variety of genres and languages that convey compelling and often untold narratives.
Melinda Becker is a multi-faceted performer singing a diverse repertoire of Renaissance, Baroque, and contemporary classical works, as well as French, Spanish and Ladino art song. In addition to performing throughout the Bay Area, she has performed throughout Spain, Portugal, Egypt, and France. San Francisco native Anne Rainwater is a dexterous musician known for her vibrant interpretations of works from J.S. Bach to John Zorn. Recognized for her “boldly assertive rhetoric” (San Francisco Examiner) and “bright golden honeycomb for a brain” (Roy Doughty, poet), she appears as a soloist, chamber musician, and educator.
