“Her familiarity with this daunting piece was evident as she matched her vocal gymnastics with physical ones. With each shift, Kristin morphed into every kind of character you could imagine. In Tapestry Opera’s Earnest Balmer Studio, Kristin was close enough to look back at us and make us uncomfortable (also earning a few laughs); her face never stopped changing, and convincingly so. Vocally, she seemed in comfortable control of the huge palate written by Sokolovic; the demands on the singer in this piece are huge, and I give a big nod to Kristin for pulling it off while prostrate/squatting/spinning.”    (Love Songs by Ana Sokolovic, Sing!
