Eclectic virtuoso Kristen Mather de Andrade has been a member of the prestigious West Point Concert Band since 2007 and the Band’s principal clarinetist and soloist since 2012.

She became interested in Brazilian music and culture when she met her husband in 2011, and her album “Clarão,” has received accolades both in the U.S. and in Brazil for its authenticity, creativity, and virtuosity. A soulful singer as well, Kristen’s vocal stylings have been hailed as “just as powerful as her clarinet.” (Independent Artist Buzz)
