About Kristen

Throughout her performing career, Kristen has been sought after for teaching private lessons, conducting ensembles and adjudicating vocal competitions. Most recently, Kristen served as Music Director of St. Michael & All Angels in Studio City, California, recruiting and leading the volunteer choir as well as the paid section leaders/soloists, directing the Children's Church singers, the brass ensemble at Easter time and overseeing the integration of the Bell Choir and Organist into the worship service.  Oftentimes, Kristen would supplement the music with compositions of her own, tailor made for her beloved choir and the liturgy. 

On stage, Kristen commands an audience, whether singing Baroque arias with orchestra, German lieder & French chansons in a recital or singing her own soul pop songs at the piano with her choir backing her up. You've heard Kristen's voice recorded on soundtracks to FrozenBig Hero 6MinionsGodzilla and other movies, as well as singing back up on both of The Brendan Hines' records and singing up front on her two albums, found on this very site.
