Lyric Soprano Christine Brandt approaches each new project with passion and determination. Born in Kitchener, Ontario, Brandt started her musical education singing with the KW Philharmonic Children’s Choir. After 12 years of piano studies, Brandt began training in vocal performance at Wilfrid Laurier University (Waterloo, Ontario), where she sang with the Maureen Forrester Women's Choir in addition to numerous solo projects and creative endeavors.
She received her Bachelor of Music in 2016, with a minor in psychology. In 2016, Christine was named runner up in the Kitchener Waterloo Chamber Orchestra competition and attended Music Theatre Bavaria (MTB) in Oberaudorf, Germany where she worked with Cynthia Munzer. In 2017, Christine was a featured soloist with The Diplomatic Choir of Berlin conducted by Barbra Leifer which provided the opportunity to perform for German dignitaries and government officials at their official Christmas tree lighting ceremony. In 2018, she arranged and performed a duet recital “If you can’t say it, sing it!” with Ivica Balabain in Waterloo and Toronto, Ontario.
Brandt has worked with soprano Lynda Mieske, tenor Victor Martens, and mezzo-soprano Barbra Leifer and has performed in master classes with Lucy Arner, Kim Josephson, and Pam Philips. She has also worked with notable directors such as Gordon Ostrowski, Paul Cegys, and Emma Griffin. Christine shares her passion for music with others through teaching piano and voice lessons. She worked with younger children to spark their interest in music through a music starters program which introduces children ages 3-6 to different instruments and theory. She has also worked with children choirs in her hometown of Kitchener, speaking with them about her journey and educating them about Opera.
Christine recently graduated from the Masters program at Mannes School of Music at The New School where she studied with tenor William Burden.
