Christina Hourihan

“Scintillating” Soprano, Voice Over Talent, and Actor Christina Hourihan “...has a bright coloratura sound which is well-focused and well-suited to...trills, arpeggios, and wide skips” (Voce di Meche, Meche Kroop). Being a lyric coloratura, Hourihan is no stranger to fun soubrette roles. She has sung the roles of Adele in Die Fledermaus and Frasquita in Carmen with Delaware Valley Opera, in addition to having sung roles such as Suor Genovieffa (Suor Angelica), The Bat (L'enfant et les Sortilèges), and Papagena (Die Zauberflöte). As a Young Artist, she took on the role of the coquettish Zerlina in Don Giovanni with Nevada Opera, the feisty Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro with Delaware Valley Opera, and covered the role of Oberto in Handel’s Alcina with Opera Steamboat. She also joined the Mediterranean Opera Studio in Caltagirone, Italy, where she performed in concerts that were held in both Caltagirone and Palermo. In addition, Hourihan frequently collaborates with living composers who write a variety of genres. NYC based composer David Morneau composed a set of songs for her voice, which she later premiered, called “Neighbors: The Yard Critters.” She also collaborated with world-renowned pianist Kyungmi Nam to premiere “A Wind in the Leaves,” a piece composed by Danny Leo for the Vox Novus Music Festival at Symphony Space. This past season, she was the Soprano Soloist in Haydn’s Mass in Time of War with the Choral Art Society of NJ as well as the Soprano Soloist in The Peacemakers by Karl Jenkins with the Delaware Valley Choral Society. Ms. Hourihan holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Muhlenberg College and a Master of Music degree from The Conservatory of Music at Brooklyn College. Christina currently resides in New York City.
