Soprano, Kristine Kalina, has taught voice at the AMDA NY campus since 2001. Ms. Kalina was the founding member of the chamber ensemble Vociano, and the creator of The Sounds of Goya, a multimedia exploration of the music of Enrique Granados and the works of master painter, Francisco Goya. Her operatic roles include Nannetta from Verdi's Falstaff, Poppea from Monteverdi's L'incoronazione di Poppea and Najade from R. Strauss' Ariadne auf Naxos.
