Rebecca Lenton studied flute at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London with Averil Williams, and the Musik-Akademie Basel, Switzerland with Felix Renggli. She lives in Berlin and has been a member of the Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin since 2002, with whom she has performed internationally, including at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Wien Modern, Carnegie Hall in New York, Donaueschinger Musiktage, Ultraschall Festival and Märzmusik in Berlin, Festival Présences in Paris, and tours to Argentina, Japan and Taiwan.
Rebecca Lenton is also a regular guest with Klangforum Wien in Austria and performed the premiere of Hector Parra’s flute concerto: Moins qu'un souffle, à peine un mouvement de l'air with the ensemble at the Konzerthaus in Vienna in 2012. She has also freelanced with orchestras including Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London Philharmonic and BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
In 2011, Rebecca founded the KNM campus ensemble, a group of amateur musicians which now performs regularly in Berlin and has premiered several pieces written for the ensemble. The ensemble was invited to perform at the CoMA Festival at King's Place, London in March 2016 and hosted its own KNM campus days at Podewil in October last year, Berlin's first festival for amateur players of contemporary music.
