The singing professor
Despite having the face of a child, Kristin serves as a full-time professor of voice and diction, teaching Applied Voice, Music Appreciation, American Popular Music, Italian diction, French diction, and Italian diction, while performing regionally as a freelance opera singer and crossover violinist.
This year (2017), she was heard on the newly released album "Brave" as vocalist and violinist with the contemporary Christian group Wade Huggins & Band (www.wadehuggins.com), performed Verdi's Stabat Mater and Poulenc's Gloria with the Dallas Choral Festival, was featured as a guest artist with Wade Huggins & Band at the New Hampshire Soulfest Worship Festival, and performed three sacred Bach Cantatas with the Highland Park Chorale. Coming up in 2018, she will be preparing Herbert Howell's Hymnus Paradisi and Poulenc's Stabat Mater in January, while performing modern sacred works by Lauridsen and Gjeilo in May.
When not geeking out over books or video games, she can be found eating her weight in ramen with her Nordic giant of a husband, having craft parties while watching Star Trek with her Mum, or cuddling with her two chihuahuas.
