Kristina Rasmussen

Kirstina Rasmussen is active both as a choral composer and conductor. She discovered her love of writing for chorus during her undergraduate studies in composition at the University of Southern California. Morten Lauridsen, her teacher and mentor during her time at USC, helped her find her musical voice, and his influence is evident in her music. Her pieces have been performed by such choirs as USC's Concert Choir, Boston University's Women's Chorale, Harvard University's Glee Club, the Piedmont Children's Chorus, the Peninsula Women's Chorus, and the San Francisco Choral Society. Several of her works can be found in the Roger Wagner Choral Series, published by Fred Bock, and distributed by Hal Leonard.

Kirstina pursued graduate studies in choral conducting at Boston University under the tutelage of Ann Howard Jones, receiving the distinction of 'Outstanding Merit' from the choral department for two consecutive years. Following her graduate program, she taught at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, where she had the privilege of working alongside Weston Noble, and later directed choral programs at Proctor Academy and Colby-Sawyer College in central New Hampshire. Kirstina now resides in Southern California and is active as a singer and composer. She is the music director at the Newport Center United Methodist Church in Corona del Mar.
