KRISTA BUCKLAND REISNER
“Things done right..”(Boston Globe), “…Excellent left hand..”(Toronto Star), and “…lovely tonal bloom…”(LeDROIT), describe performances of violinist Krista Buckland Reisner. Over the past 25 years, she has performed with well-known and diverse musicians from Leonard Bernstein to John Williams, Anton Kuerti, Placido Domingo, Brian Wilson, Smokey Robinson, and Diana Krall. Krista has performed across North America, Europe, Russia and New Zealand, including performances at Carnegie Hall, La Scala, and the Boston Esplanade on July 4th with the Boston Pops. One of Krista’s passions is opera, and she served as Principal Second Violin of the Canadian Opera Company Orchestra, Concertmaster of Opera Boston, performed Wagner’s “Ring Cycle” with the Arizona Opera, and played in the Santa Fe Opera Orchestra. Also an early music aficionado, Krista has performed with Canada’s Aradia, Boston Baroque, and is currently a tenured member of the Handel and Haydn Society. Krista’s love of chamber music led her to join the Worcester Chamber Music Society nine years ago. Her commitment to bringing this art form to the Worcester community also included taking on administrative roles within WCMS as the organization grew. These included acting as General Manager and managing the Summer Festival and Music Camp for six years, as she also pursued an MBA at Babson College. Krista currently acts as a business analyst consultant in IT, while continuing to perform about 50 concerts a year.
