zMeet Our Accompanist

Kristine Anderson, accompanist

Kristine Anderson graduated with a music degree from the University of Montana at Missoula.  She is well-known in the Puget Sound region for her artistic and sensitive work with singers as well as instrumentalists ranging from tuba to piccolo.  Equally at home with jazz, pop, and classical, she can adjust her style from Sondheim to Gershwin to Strauss.

Her clients include winners in local and national competitions, including the Seattle Young Artist Music Festival, Metropolitan Opera semifinals, and concerto contests.  Kristine also serves as accompanist for the Flute and Piccolo Forum, hosted by Seattle Symphony flutist Zart Dombourian Eby. In the fall of 2010, Kristine accompanied a former Flute Forum attendee, Justin Lee, on his Western Washington tour after he won the Ladies Musical Club contest.

In addition to holding two church-pianist positions in Seattle, she was music director for the Seattle Musical Theater, formerly known as Civic Light Opera, during their production of High Society, and the pianist for the Seattle Opera Guild’s Preview shows.  In 2012 she became an employee in the University of Washington Music Department and a staff accompanist. She has been the accompanist for Bellevue Chamber Chorus for the past twelve seasons.  In addition to the Bellevue Chamber Chorus, she accompanies the choir at North Seattle College.
