Kristina Koller at Dogwood on November 3
Eclectic jazz vocalist Kristina Koller will perform in the Dogwood Center's Black Box on Friday, November 3 at 7:30 p.m. She will be presenting music from her latest project “No One is Alone” which features songs from classic musicals West Side Story, Into the Woods, Hair and Jesus Christ Superstar, as well as others. Selecting songs she embraced over the years performing musical theater, Koller re-arranges them with flair weaving funk, jazz and neo-soul into the mix creating a captivating twist on familiar show tunes.
Always innovative and pushing the limit, Kristina Koller is making her mark in the music world. As an evolving jazz-centric artist, Kristina has developed into a highly individual songwriter, arranger and vocalist. Koller creates music that crosses generations, while still embracing the history and mood of traditional jazz. She arranges tunes in unique ways, pushing the boundaries of vocal jazz. Kristina revamps classic material while retaining their essence, putting her own winning personality and fresh ideas into the music and lyrics that she interprets
Growing up just outside of New York City, Kristina was exposed to a wide array of music and dance which markedly influenced her at an early age. She performed in youth musical theater and eventually branched out artistically, embracing solo performance as a teen singer-songwriter and vocalist in alt-rock bands. Her artistic thirst reached into classical art songs, opera and vocal jazz. On scholarship she studied at The Hartt School’s Jackie McLean Institute of Jazz and completed her formal music education at The City College of New York. Kristina developed her musical voice in the NYC jazz scene, performing at venerable haunts such as Smalls, Smoke, Minton's, Mezzrow, as well as The Apollo Theater.
