Ms. Elsner is the founder and artistic director of of the Allegro Children's Choral program in Kansas City, Missouri. She laughs loudly, and often, and is known to experiment with all sorts of crazy and unique teaching methods. Christy truly believes the bar of excellence can always be raised and expects her Allegro students to pursue greatness in all facets of their lives, not just in music! Christy’s career highlights include Brio’s SWACDA performances in Dallas and St. Louis, the 2012 Brio White House performance and private performance for President and Mrs. Barack Obama, prepping and watching the yearly performances at the Kauffman Center with the KC Symphony.
