While pursuing a career in music, Rebecca Buringrud is currently studying as a trombone performance at the University of California Los Angeles. Throughout the years, she has enjoyed numerous musical opportunities such as the county honor bands, her beloved woodsy music camp, the California All-State Honor Orchestra and the California All-State Honor Band, including being ranked first chair two years in a row. Experiences like this is what brought Rebecca to realize her passion for music, while also bringing her wonderful job opportunities like working as a trombone counselor at the summer camp she herself used to go to, Donner Mine Music Camp. This vibrant 19 year old sophomore is loving the experience she is getting at UCLA, while feeling lucky enough to work under such a wonderful trombone professor, James Miller. Above all, Rebecca enjoys making the most of life as she lives a hectic school and work schedule, balancing a healthy lifestyle and maintaining a social life as much as any college student is able to.
