Nina McCrae is a native of Philadelphia, PA. During her adolescence, she was very shy. Her parents wanted her to become more confident and social so they enrolled Nina into Freedom Theater, a popular African American theater arts school in Philadelphia, PA.
Nina found her passion for music and theatre, participating in many professional shows and showcases over her 15 years there. After high school, Nina wanted to continue her education in music and was accepted into Berklee College of Music with a World Tour Scholarship.
She found her passion working at the Cambridge YMCA where she started a musical theatre club. Her gift of working with children and bringing out their best selves and talents was undeniable. Parents and teachers alike started to take notice. The popularity of the program grew quickly and 4 productions were completed while Nina ran the program until her relocation back to the tri State area.
She completed her studies with a Diploma in Professional Music from Berklee College of Music in 2012, returning home ready to make a difference in the Tri state area.
Along with performing all different styles of music, Nina has also worked as vocal director for Parks and Recreations performing arts summer program, and currently is an teaching artist at The Kimmel Center for their One musical, Jazz 4 Freedom and Showstoppers Jr programs.
