"An absolutely amazing talent, and a great person to boot. Cristina is a delight both to work with and to know. A master artisan in her craft, she deftly manipulates her sound exactly how she intends to, creating unique interpretations, flawless tributes, and emotional performances."
"She has a way of explaining things to me so that I'll understand them. That's hard to do sometimes, with voice, because so much of it is so abstract. But she's very patient. And we laugh a lot together."
[When asked what stood out the most during a recital performance] "Her versatility. I've never been to a recital where I heard opera, art song, jazz, pop, and musical theater all in the same program. It's like she has a dial that she can just turn to a genre and go."
