Rebekah Phillips

Executive Director


With expertise in both earned revenue and audience development strategies, Rebekah brings more than 15 years of arts management experience to the Portland Columbia Symphony. A trained classical bassoonist, her career began here in Portland at Chamber Music Northwest, where she spent more than a decade exploring the many sides of arts administration before discovering a passion for marketing. In 2014 she joined the Oregon Symphony team, where she was instrumental in developing digital and brand strategies, as well as setting multiple earned income records for the institution, which she did while leading the department for nearly a year as Interim Vice President for Marketing, Communications & Sales. When she’s not running, working on her garden, or doting on her two shiba inus, Rebekah serves on the Board of Directors of the Montavilla Farmers Market. She is a graduate of the Oberlin College Conservatory of Music.
