"Stirring and heartrending, frivolous and fantastic, traditional and sublime, new and bold! These are the hallmarks of our third season on stage in the resplendent Partridge Hall.
Welcome to Chorus Niagara's 54th season, it's the Power of 100 and more!"
Robert Cooper,C.M., Artistic Director and Conductor
Krista Rhodes is a sought after collaborative pianist and recording artist in the GTA, working with a wide variety of organizations and artists. She has appeared on stages in North America, Hungary, Belgium, Holland, and the UK. Krista greatly enjoys co-creating with others, and each artist she works with receives her intuitive musicality. Whether working with an opera chorus, brass quintet, mezzo soprano, or children’s choir, Krista is at home in a wide variety of styles, and particularly enjoys improvising and tailoring performances to the musicians she is working with.
Krista has been coaching students and performing artists for nearly twenty years, and takes great pride in helping musicians and vocalists achieve confidence, polished performances, and a feeling of ease on stage. With Honours degrees in both Music and Education, her teaching has taken her to school boards, conservatories, private studios, and post-secondary institutions.
Exciting projects Krista has recently worked on include being featured artist for the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra’s outreach program, creating music for a meditation album, showcasing the new world-renowned auditory technology at McMaster University’s Live Lab, and recording both solo and orchestral piano pieces heard on the Oprah Winfrey Show. She is also the accompanist for the Bach Elgar Choir and Brott Music Festival in Hamilton, Ontario.
Krista resides in Stoney Creek, Ontario, with her husband, Glen, and children, Charlotte and Adrian. She is thrilled to be joining Chorus Niagara as Collaborative Pianist.
