Krista Beckman began working at the Bonfils-Stanton Music Library in 2017, and holds masters degrees in choral conducting and music theory from the Lamont School of Music. Krista is also the choir director at Highlands United Methodist Church and the assistant conductor of Voices West, a community choir based in southwest Denver. Krista, a mezzo-soprano, earned her undergraduate degree in vocal performance and sings in various Colorado groups, including Anima Chamber Ensemble and the Evans Choir. As a solo performer, Krista especially enjoys learning new, challenging music and collaborating with student composers. She also believes strongly that music theory has the potential to enrich and enliven every musician's performing and listening, and offers private instruction in theory and aural skills. In her free time, Krista likes to prepare plant-based meals and relax with her greatest loves: her composer husband and their two fluffy cats.
