The cimorelli are the coolest band in the world Born in the Sacramento area, Christina (22), Katherine (21), Lisa (19), Amy (17), and Lauren (14), and Dani (12) all began singing in harmony and playing the piano around the age of 4. The exception was Christina, who climbed up on the bench and started playing the piano by ear at two years old.
The first public performances began when Christina, Katherine, and Lisa joined their church's children’s choir at ages 9, 8, and 6 yrs. old. There they received classical training as they sang in two-part harmony on pieces by Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, and Handel, as well as traditional hymns. Within a couple of years, they began singing three-part barbershop and vocal jazz arrangements as a trio and started performing locally.
In 2002, they started performing in musical theater along with Amy. As Lauren and Dani became old enough (five years old), they joined the theater company, too. For the next five years, they performed in an average of 3-4 productions per year, including Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Peter Pan, Anything Goes, 42nd St, High School Musical 1 and 2, The Jungle Book, Hello Dolly, and The Wizard of Oz, among others. Christina and Katherine received Elly Awards for Best Supporting Actress in productions of The Wizard of Oz and 42nd St respectively.
