From a young age Corina has shown a deep love and connection to music. Bitten by the jazz bug as a teenager, she decided to undertake years of intensive, self-directed study as well as exposing herself to live music any chance she got both as an audience member and participant.
She is fluent in Spanish, German, English and Portuguese as well as being a competent French speaker. As such, she not only possesses a broad repertoire of songs but also the ability to communicate with a wide range of audiences. Her conduct is highly professional, always showing great respect for the audience, the musicians and the music.
