Kristen Jones, mezzo-soprano, inherited a love of Big Band music from her parents, and so she is thrilled for the opportunity to sing with the Patriot’s Symphonic Band. She received Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in vocal performance from Bowling Green State University. Kristen frequently solos and performs with many groups in the greater Cleveland area, including the West Shore Chorale, as well as on musical theatre and opera stages. In 2009 she was inducted into Avon Lake’s Mighty Goliath Productions Hall of Fame. Since 2001 she has sung with the professional choral ensemble, The Canterbury Singers, which performs regularly in residence in British cathedrals. Kristen is vice president of Wesleyan Senior Living Foundation. Kristen and her husband Joel Schmittgen reside in Elyria.
