Biography

Christina Whitten Thomas’s compositions have been described as “shaped with great skill and commitment,” “imaginative,” and “extraordinarily moving.” As a recipient of the Sorel Medallion in 2007 for Choral de Bêtes, Christina attended the premiere performance of the work, performed by Voices of Ascension, in Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall. She was invited back to Zankel Hall in 2008 to hear Voices of Ascension perform Take Peace, which was awarded the Sorel Conductor’s Choice award that year. In 2011, Musica Sacra of New York encored Choral de Bêtes in Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center. This work for a cappella choir was recorded by Musica Sacra for their 2012 CD release Messages to Myself.

Her awards include 1st place in the 2011 Indianapolis Symphonic Choir composition competition for A Child of the Snows, 1st place in the 2011 Los Robles Master Chorale competition for My Cathedral, 1st place in the 2010 Park Avenue Christian Church competition for The Lord is King, 1st place in the 2010 Wallingford Chorus competition for The Lamp of Life, and 2nd place in the 2010 NATS Art Song Composition Award for her song cycle In the Garret.

Christina’s commissions include 'Tis You That Are The Music (2014) for the Los Angeles Master Chorale Chamber Singers, Discovery (2011) for the Esoterics of Seattle, Mornings With You (2011) for Melodia Women’s Choir of NYC, The Academy of Silence (2011) for tenor Matthew Alan Thomas, Three Songs of Life (2009) for the USC Apollo Men’s Choir, and The Raising of Lazarus (2006) for the First Baptist Church of Worcester. Christina received her B.A. in music from Middlebury College in 2002 and her M.M. in composition from the University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music in 2005. She currently resides in Pasadena, California where she is also an active vocalist and teacher.
