Christina was the Youth Singers Director and resident Vocal Coach at the First Congregational Church in Shrewsbury, MA for many years. She also managed the vocal intern program there, providing training and performance opportunities for promising teenage vocalists. She served as music director at Calliope Theater in Boylston for their critically acclaimed productions of “Lucky Stiff” and “She Loves Me.” As the director of Post Road Chorus, she won the Barbara K.

Christina's unique background helps her train successful singers. A proud geek, Christina holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and a Master's Certificate through Berklee College of Music. Her science and engineering training help her understand the science of singing. She has expanded her vocal science knowledge through her yearly trips to the Acoustical Vocal Pedagogy Workshops at New England Conservatory. Her performance career and choral directing background help her understand the more ethereal aspects of vocal performance, allowing her to express them more concretely to her students. She blends artistry, experience, and technology to help her students uncover their best singer. We welcomed Christina to the JOMP faculty in 2020.
