Soprano Kristine Overman fell in love with music from a young age, always singing along to her parents’ musical records as a little girl.  Recognizing that she had a good voice, her parents sent her to audition for the Michigan Opera Theater Children’s Chorus at the age of 10.  While onstage in her first production, Carmen, she fell in love with opera and never stopped.  Her flair for the dramatic made her a natural on stage and she never looked back, dedicating her life to the operatic art form.


Most recently on the operatic stage, Kristine performed the title role in Massenet’s Cendrillon at Opera in the Ozarks.  A recent graduate of the University of Houston, she had the pleasure of portraying Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, Amelia in Amelia al ballo, Lady Billows in Albert Herring, and Mrs. Pinkerton in the Old Maid and the Thief.  Unable to resist a Mozart heroine, she has also portrayed Vitellia in La Clemenza di Tito at Music Academy International and the Countess in the Marriage of Figaro at both the University of Michigan and Prague Summer Nights. Other notable roles include Miss Copland in Dinner at Eight, Romilda in Serse and Suor Dolcina in Suor Angelica. 


On the concert stage, she has sung most notably the soprano solos in the Mozart Requiem and Forrest’s Jubilate Deo. She has also excelled in some prominent competitions, winning 1st prize in the NATS Regional Auditions in Southeast Michigan, taking 3rd place in the George Shirley Vocal Competition and competing as a Finalist in the University of Michigan Concert Competition. 


Kristine works as a voice teacher where she is inspired on a daily basis by seeing and hearing people from all levels and diverse backgrounds fall in love with all types of music. 


Outside of music, Kristine loves to cook. She recently finished translating all of her grandma's recipes from French and then cooked her way through them - a difficult but rewarding experience.  She also plays the piano and is an avid swing dancer. 


Kristine earned her Bachelor's Degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Michigan and received the Moores Fellowship Endowment to pursue her Masters in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy at the University of Houston. She currently resides in Columbia, South Carolina and studies with International Operatic Soprano, Jennifer Rowley.
