Her energy and vision have enabled the Chorale to expand in terms of membership and artistic reach, enhancing the quality of its musical productions and establishing partnerships with such noted groups as the Jefferson Symphony Orchestra, Colcannon, The Queen City Jazz Band, Fiesta Colorado and others. Collaborations for the upcoming season include Denver Brass, Jefferson Symphony and Rocky Mountain Brass Works. Christine was born and raised in Germany, where she studied voice and dance. Following a move to California she received degrees in voice performance, music education and music history and a Master's in Conducting.
