A magna cum laude graduate of Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey, soprano Kristine Hurst-Wajszczuk divides her time between concert and stage work. As a 1999 Young Artist with Wildwood Park for the Performing Arts in Little Rock, Arkansas, Ms. Hurst-Wajszczuk performed the role of Micaela in an adaptation of Carmen for over 40,000 schoolchildren throughout Arkansas and Texas. Other recent engagements include the roles of Bastienne in Mozart¹s first opera Bastien und Bastienne, and Constance in Poulenc's The Dialogues of the Carmelites. Solo oratorio repertoire encompasses Mozart¹s Mass in G, Fauré's Requiem, Handel's Jephtha, Mozart's Requiem, Rutter's Requiem, Mendelssohn's Elijah, Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915, Handel's Messiah, Vivaldi's Gloria, and Mozart's Exsultate, Jubilate. An active recitalist, her credits include an evening of English and American song performed in her home state of Vermont, featuring a world premiere of theatre songs by composer Zeke Hecker. She participated in composer Bill Mayer's 70th birthday celebration concert in Weill Recital Hall in the role of Madeline in the composer's The Eve of St. Agnes. A four-year veteran of the Spoleto Festival USA in Charleston and Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto, Italy, Ms. Hurst-Wajszczuk performed with the Westminster Choir under the batons of Bernstein, Muti, Mehta, Levine, and Masur. Additional operatic roles include Despina in Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte, both Angel More and Anna Hope in Virgil Thomson's The Mother of Us All, Anne Trulove in Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress, and the title role in Gilbert and Sullivan's Princess Ida. Ms. Hurst-Wajszczuk is currently a doctoral student at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and covered the role of Zerlina in CU's 2002 production of Don Giovanni. Especially interested in early music, her first doctoral recital included Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre's rarely performed cantata "Semele," and this fall presented a lecture recital entitled, "Dowland's Lute Songs and the Cult of Elizabeth I." At CU, she has been the recipient of the Burton Coffin Scholarship, the Nancy and Ted Anderson Award, the Adopt-a-Student Honors Award, and a Colorado Graduate Fellowship. Ms. Hurst-Wajszczuk is the Lead Teaching Assistant for the College of Music at CU, and a TA through the Graduate Teacher Program.
