This year, Crescendo welcomes Christy Elsner, Founder and Artistic Director of Allegro Choirs of Kansas City, a community-based children's choir.

Christy Elsner is full of humor and inspiration, engaging her singers with innovative and demanding rehearsals. Under her direction since 2000, Allegro has grown from one choir of 38 to six choirs with over 250 singers.

Christy has been an active clinician for children’s, youth, and treble choirs and conducted many regional, state, and national honor choirs.   She completed six years as the SWACDA Children’s and Community Youth R&S Chair. She is also a past recipient of the KCDA Outstanding Young Conductor Award.

Christy received her music education degree from the University of Kansas and received the Marcus E. Hahn Award for Outstanding Senior in Music Education. Professional memberships include MENC, Chorister’s Guild, Chorus America, and ACDA. 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.

Crescendo Community Chorus began hosting the Dilworth Choral Festival in the spring of 2014. The festival is named for its original conductor and benefactor, Rollo Dilworth, who generously offered to help support the event in future years.
