Christina Britton ConroyChristina Britton Conroy is a Certified Music Therapist and Licensed Creative Arts Therapist, she founded Music Gives Life. We bring musical performing into the lives of senior citizens. Many of my Show Stoppers, ages 60-101, never performed in public before joining my program. NY1-TV News named us their NYers of the Week. A former senior center director, nursing home music therapist, and primary caregiver for two elderly relatives, I have unique insights into the joys and frustrations shared by geriatric patients and their caregivers.

I Want To Go To Lithuania, or HOW TO HAVE FUN WITH YOUR AGING PARENTS, my step-by-step, hands-on manual for adults who love and care for older adults received a stellar Kirkus review.

Not From the Stars (His Majesty’s Theatre), But From Thine Eyes: Scintillating historical drama set in an Edwardian English theatre (His Majesty’s Theatre), Truth and Beauty (His Majesty’s Theatre), and Beauty’s Doom (His Majesty’s Theatre), make up my 4-book historical fiction series: His Majesty’s Theatre (4 Book Series), published by Endeavour Press, UK. It tells the story of a gay actor-manager escaping arrest by pretending to marry his leading lady and father her illegitimate child. Together, they harbour a beautiful country heiress escaping a forced marriage.

My years as a professional singer compelled me to write my first novel, ONE MAN’S MUSIC. Set in NYC during the Vietnam period, it is the story of a young soprano’s obsession with an orchestral composer. ONE MAN’S MUSIC is available in paperback, audiobook, and eBook.

In my first career: a classically trained singer/actor, I toured the globe singing operas, operettas, and musicals. I soloed with orchestras, oratorio societies, at Radio City Music Hall, and folk venues, accompanying myself the guitar and Irish Harp. My theatrical credits include: On The Twentieth Century, directed by Harold Prince, with Rock Hudson, Imogene Coca, and Judy Kaye; The Women with Anita Gillette, Dody Goodman, Julie Newmar, Virginia Graham, Jane Kean, and Margaux Hemingway; and the original Actors Studio production of Let ‘em Rot by Cy Coleman, directed by Morton DaCosta.

I am very lucky to live in Greenwich Village, NYC with my darling husband, actor/media-coach/cartoonist, Larry Conroy.
