ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On this special collection of Christmas favorites, Kinsey takes a fresh approach. Seven of the 9 included hymns contain a melody created when the Christmas tune is turned upside down. The result – the combination of adored holiday compositions and the new haunting upside down melodies.

___

Some listeners describe Stephanie Kinsey's piano performances as soothing or relaxing, while others have considered it just magical. Music brings her a joy that she willingly shares with others.

Stephanie began piano lessons at the age of five and along the way added organ lessons so she could play for church services. While her musical background is in classical music, Stephanie has developed improvisational abilities that have helped her in composing and arranging. During high school she won a statewide California competition for best original composition.

In June 2000, Stephanie graduated from Pacific Union College in the Napa Valley with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Relations. She studied organ performance there with Dr. Del Case and performed on the Pacific Union College Church organ, the largest of its kind on the west coast.

Other venues have included playing background music at various events like Christmas parties, social occasions, and other events. Since the fall of 1999, she has performed, through agencies, at various wineries and resorts throughout the Bay Area.

For five years, Stephanie served as the Music Director at the Ygnacio Valley Presbyterian Church, and still plays as the wedding organist at the Oakland Greek Orthodox Cathedral, and performs as a guest organist/pianist at other churches of various denominations all over the Bay Area.

Great music for the Christmas season!
I love this CD--It is beautiful and very relaxing, but also interesting. Would be a great CD to give as a give or for use in a variety of occasions. My favorites are Hark the Herald and Still, still, still.

Perfect for the holidays!
I was given this CD as a gift and it has quickly become one of my favorite holiday albums. I listen to it at the office all the time, and have used it as background music during holiday get-togethers. My favorites are "Away in a Manger" and "Silent Night." The interpretations are beautiful, and I hope Kinsey releases another CD someday!
