Elizabeth Krestyn has been interested in music from an early age, spending much of her time studying piano, singing in choir, and listening to classical music. Much of her musical education came from listening to and participating with her family’s singing. In 2010 she started private training in classical voice. Since then she has sung a season with Pasadena Pro Musica in 2012-2013, and in 2013 she was the first place winner of the Pasadena Schubertiade high school lieder competition.
In 2014 she performed Mozart’s “Exultate Jubilate” for PPM’s fiftieth anniversary concert. Currently she attends college in Ojai, and now performs as a guest for Pasadena Pro Musica. Her repertoire includes arias from Atalanta, Dido and Aeneas, The Magic Flute, The Abduction from the Seraglio, The Marriage of Figaro, Lakme, Rusalka, Rigoletto, The Ballad of Baby Doe, Martha, Falstaff, Faust, La Boheme, Gianni Schicci, Un Ballo in Maschera, and art songs by John Dowland, Handel, Faure, Schubert, Grieg, and Samuel Barber, and the soprano solos from Handel’s Messiah and Bach’s St. Matthew’s Passion. She looks forward to working more with PPM this year.
