POLYPHONIC VOICES

Kristy helped create Polyphonic Voices in 2014. PV presents a wide variety of music from the classical choral tradition, but also arrangements from jazz, pop, folk, and other alternative genres. Collaborations have included Hilltop Hoods, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Patti LuPone, and various local ensembles, freelance musicians, and visual artists.

THE CONSORT OF MELBOURNE

Kristy is a founding member of the Consort of Melbourne. CoM comprises eight of Melbourne's finest chamber singers under the artistic direction of Steven Hodgson. Typically performing a capella (unaccompanied) with one singer per part, CoM champions both historic and contemporary repertoire, bringing 1000 years of vocal music to life with an intimacy and verve that leaves audiences spellbound.
