'My grandmother took me to the opera 'Faust' when I was 6, and I realized I wanted to sing like that," said multifaceted soprano and actor Kristen Woolf. "That desire never left me. I was born in Utah, in Salt Lake City. My parents were bohemian, but the whole rest of the family was Mormon. My mother moved us down to Los Alamos to teach. I sang in all kinds of things in school. Then when I was a young mother with kids, they hired me at the Episcopal Cathedral of St. John in Albuquerque to be soprano soloist and section leader. I did that for about 12 years. In those days the Episcopalians wanted really good music and they were happy to pay for it. We did all the sacred liturgy.
