Kristin Gornstein

With a career that encompasses opera and concerts, the sacred and the profane, Kristin Gornstein joyfully brings her “rich-voiced mezzo-soprano” and “lines of an uncannily silky legato” [New York Times] to all genres of her work. She was lauded for her recent portrayal of Ramiro in Mozart’s La finta giardiniera in a co-production by On Site Opera and Atlanta Opera, a role she reprised in 2018 at Caramoor. The 2017/18 season also brought debuts with The Prototype Festival (Aquanetta), and the Little Opera Theatre of New York as Piramo in Johan Hasse’s baroque gem Piramo e Tisbe. Kristin made her Carnegie Hall debut in the Spring of 2018, winning third place in the Lyndon Woodside Oratorio Competition. She has toured extensively with Mark Morris Dance Company’s acclaimed production of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas as an ensemble member, appeared at Lincoln Center with the New York Philharmonic for Honegger’s Jean D’Arc au Bûcher, and has made numerous appearances with NYC’s Heartbeat Opera, with whom she is an Associate Artist. As a member of the St. Ignatius choir, Kristin regularly performs as a soloist with the Concerts at St. Ignatius series, most recently singing a set of Mendelssohn’s motets for soloists and choir.
