Ms. Rusnak has been passionate about music since she first started composing at age nine. Composing about place and the human experience, Christina Rusnak seeks to integrate context into her music from various sources, including landscape, culture, history and art. She strives to compose music that is thought-provoking, and engages both the performers and the audience.
She has written for chamber ensemble, women’s choir, orchestra, as well as jazz and electro-acoustic works. An avid hiker, she has composed for the U.S. Forest Service, as well as National and State Parks. Ms. Rusnak’s essays appear in several music publications. Her music is available on Parma Recordings.
