She started singing and taking private lessons at the age of 9, and after that followed piano, and then the French horn. Kristin has acquired her grade 10 level in Voice from the Royal Conservatory of Toronto, and she studied at the University of Victoria where she received a Bachelor of Music (Performance) with a major in French horn and a minor in Voice. She also completed her Bachelor of Education at UVIC, with a Major in Secondary Instrumental and Vocal Education.
Kristin has performed as a freelance musician with numerous ensembles in BC and Alberta including the Victoria Symphony, The Vancouver Island Symphony, The Kelowna Symphony, and more. Currently she regularly performs with Altius Brass and the Rocky Mountain Symphony here in Calgary. Kristin is a junior high band director and also director of the Foothills Children’s Choir in Okotoks.
When she is not busy doing music, Kristin enjoys a good cup of coffee, watching the sunrise from her home in the country, and making fun memories with family and pets.
