Ms Rogers has been performing concert solos throughout Ontario over the last decade, including broadway numbers, ceremonies and corporate events. Since her opera and classical training under Maria Riedstra at the North Toronto Institute of Music, Kirsten has won several municipal music awards over the last 5 years. Recently, she has been studying vocal arts under two of Canada's most accredited coaches: Don Tarnawski and William Shookhoff (conductor of Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera).
Kirsten's recent Gilbert and Sullivan roles include the title role in Iolanthe (2008), The Mikado's Pitti-Sing (2007) and The Yeomen of the Guard's Kate Carruthers (2006). In addition to singing, she brings with her several years of dancing, piano, acting and modeling.
Not ironically, Kirsten was lead singer/song writer of a local, pop/rock band, Kirs10, where she had the opportunity of recording her first album (Kirs10, Tart 2004) with several talented musicians, playing in Toronto locations such as The Big Bop, The 360 and The Gladstone.
