Christina Yun is a versatile artist and administrator hailing from Mississauga, Ontario and received her Masters of Music in Voice Performance at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music with Susanne Mentzer. She received her Bachelor of Music at Wilfrid Laurier University for Voice Performance with exceptional Canadian soprano Leslie Fagan.
She has performed with the SFCM Opera and Musical Theater Department, Long Reach Opera Workshop, Halifax Summer Opera Festival, Centre of Opera Studies in Italy, and Wilfrid Laurier University in a diverse range of roles from the contralto role of Mahkwa (Giiwedin: North Wind, Magowan & Dénommé-Welch, Opera Laurier, 2013), mezzo-soprano role Hermia (A Midsummer Night's Dream, Britten, HSOF 2018) to Countess Almaviva (Le nozze di Figaro, Mozart, LROW 2019). Due to CoVID-19 restrictions, her debut performance as the title role in Suor Angelica (Puccini, Berlin Opera Academy) has been postponed until further notice.
She has also performed as a soloist with Ben Kim's Musicians Without Borders Canada, the Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra, and the Halton-Mississauga Youth Orchestra, and regularly shares her music with the community of St.Stephen's on-the-Hill United Church. She is an avid supporter of vocal physiology and its importance in the fundamentals of vocal pedagogy through exploration of playfulness and unique expression. You can catch her next performances through COSA Canada, a Toronto-based opera concert program, in their virtual performances of Pirates of Penzance, The Shop Girl, and in the premiere of Dean Burry's Pigmalione in 2021.
She is the Artistic Matchmaker of Sarah Klapman's Inside Voice Music, an online music-making community and initiative to perform new works and create online performance opportunities for artists throughout the many lockdowns due to the CoVID-19 pandemic.
