Recital, Theater Center

"The smoothness of Ms. Christeson's voice in all its registers and its rich, smoky flavor were most becoming to Brahms. Her velvety mezzo voice and accurate intonation are already known elsewhere, but Sunday's recital provided the first real opportunity for us to experience the range and high quality professionalism Ms. Christeson can bring to the concert and operatic stage. Her vocal instrument is well focused and lovely to listen to, from a ringing top to a secure bottom." — Daytona Beach News Journal
