Joan Courvoisier Crisman, contralto

Joan Courvoisier Crisman holds a
Master’s Degree in Paleobotany from the University of Illinois.

Joan has sung in choral groups all her life. She was a charter member of the Willis Bodine Chorale (a long-time, greatly respected Gainesville musical institution). A frequent soloist with that group, she is also a soloist with the Gainesville Civic Chorus (their FaceBook Page). She has performed the roles of Katisha, the Fairy Queen, Lady Jane, and numerous other characters in Gilbert & Sullivan productions presented by the Lake Area Singers of Melrose.

Joan is a valued and founding member of the Nansi Carroll’s VOICES Choir, and a long-standing guest musician and soloist of the Jubilus Festival, participating in at least 15 Jubilus Concerts since 2003. She is also the designer of the brilliant Jubilus Dial/Logo, which amazingly reads the same both upside-down and right-side-up, and has long donated her services as a graphic designer to the Jubilus concert series.

She is married with three grown children, and works in the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Department at the University of Florida.
