Kristen Dubenion-Smith

~Mezzo-Soprano~

 
Kristen Dubenion-Smith possesses a lyric-mezzo of uncommon beauty, her flickering vibrato and the amber cast of her tone making something special out of the alto arias.”

~John Banno, The Washington Post-

 

"...A mezzo-soprano with a lilting voice..."

-Rebecca Corbett, The New York Times-

 

"The listener basked in the luxuriant richness of her lower register, while marveling at the facility of her upper tessitura... the depth of her conviction and connection to the music."

-Patrick McCoy, Washington Life Magazine-
