Kristin’s opera, Il Sogno, a contemporary Italian-language opera based on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, had its Italian premiere at the Teatro Communale Citta della Pieve in Umbria, Italy in 2004. Il Sogno had its NYC premiere in 2009 with Metropolis Opera Project and its regional professional company premiere with Opera Ithaca in 2015. The Metropolis Opera Project cast recording of Il Sogno was produced at NYC’s Clinton Recording Studio and the Opera Ithaca production was filmed for worldwide online release. Kristin’s additional operatic works include three works with librettist Royce Vavrek - The Wednesday Before Last (Musaic Concert Series, Crash Mansion; Metropolis Opera Project; Ithaca College Opera Workshop), Unsaid in a Field of Wildflowers (Opera Shorts, Carnegie Hall; Metropolis Opera Project; Ithaca New Music Collective; Ithaca College Opera Workshop) and Bully Pulpit (Metropolis Opera Project; Opera Ithaca), as well as One Hot Kitchen with librettist/playwright David Caudle (Metropolis Opera Project; Ithaca College Opera Workshop) and Epilogue (Metropolis Opera Project; Ithaca College Opera Workshop). Kristin’s commercial, film and tv work includes national commercials for GEICO and several indie films. A classically-trained pianist, Kristin composed and played musical accompaniment tracks for Oprah Winfrey and Deepak Chopra’s Miraculous Relationships: 21 Day Meditation Challenge, available on CD and streaming on demand from the Chopra Center.
Originally from Philadelphia, Kristin holds degrees from The Esther Boyer School of Music at Temple University, The Graduate Center of the City University of New York, and the School for Audio Engineering (SAE), NYC. As a steward of the performing arts and a stalwart contributor to the NYC contemporary music scene, Kristin serves as a Founding Director and the Resident Composer of Metropolis Opera Project, and has previously served on the board of directors for The Look and Listen Festival, an annual event dedicated to the performance of contemporary music in art galleries.
"I loved that I learned more about certain aspects of composition than in the 4 years of schooling I paid a lot of money for. While a lot of the course was a review, Kristin had experience in the real world writing music as opposed to my professors in the Academic world mostly teaching theory and sharing very little experience."
"Loved the music composition course! I highly recommend this class to anyone looking to take their Composition to the next level. Kristin was amazing and very helpful!"
"I'm a self taught musician, and although I thought that I had a good idea of theory, I pretty much knew only the basics. This course threw me in the deep end, but Kristin was there all the way to prevent me from drowning and my knowledge of theory has improved considerably."
