Krombach recorded two solo albums, Look for the Silver Lining and Profile (See below for more details.) Both of her albums are all-jazz and recorded live in one take with all real instruments. She attended the highly selective Interlochen Arts Camp after her freshman year of high school, starred in Godspell and Damn Yankees during her junior and senior years, and at the urging of her choir and band directors, attended the Jamey Aebersold Improvisation Clinic, where she fell hard for jazz. Krombach attended the University of Michigan, where she majored in musical theatre. At U of M, she performed the role of Queenie from the musical, The Wild Party. She is featured on the CD for the musical Edges as well as Forward, another musical in the making by Jonathan Gealt. Chelsea performed at the Musical Theatre of Wichita in Aida as Amneris from August 3–7, 2005. In November 2007, Chelsea made her Broadway debut in the hit Broadway musical Wicked, as the understudy for Elphaba. Before transferring to the Broadway cast, Krombach performed as swing in the first national tour of Wicked, and as an understudy for Nessarose. In 2008, Chelsea sang "The Wizard and I" at the Downtown Green Fair in lower Manhattan to help raise environmental awareness. Chelsea departed Wicked in January 2010, and is now performing in the ensemble of the Broadway Revival of Promises, Promises, also starring Kristin Chenoweth and Sean Hayes.
