A voice recital featuring Peace alumna, Christian Sineath ’04, accompanied by Dr. Milton Laufer on piano, will be held Friday, March 5, at 7:30 p.m. The concert will take place in Kenan Recital Hall and is free and open to the public.
A native of Wilmington, Ms. Sineath exhibits a wide range of performance ability. She appeared in Carnegie Hall with The New York Oratorio Society following her off-off Broadway debut in the role of Rhonda in David Hare’s The Secret Rapture, where according to Backstage she "spiced up the stage" of the Sanford Meisner Theater. Ms. Sineath was hailed by Robert’s Reviews as a "lyric soprano of uncommon beauty, equally adept at putting over a blazing vaudeville turn." Her credits include Hattie in Kiss Me Kate with the Janiec Opera Company at The Brevard Music Festival, and Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro in scenes with the Opera Theater and Music Festival of Lucca, Italy. She is currently a master’s candidate at Manhattan School of Music, studying with Ashley Putnam.
Christian Sineath received the Bachelor of Arts in Music Performance degree from Peace College in 2004. She studied voice with Professor Jim Smith, under whose guidance she was recognized for her outstanding accomplishments. During her junior and senior years as a Peace student, she won first place in the statewide competition of the National Association of Teachers of Singing in the Music Theater category, and she went on to place second in the five-state Regional competition during her senior year. Prior to her senior year at Peace, she was selected to join the Janiec Opera Company at the Brevard Music Festival, where she was the second youngest in the 40-member company.
