She gave her first concert aged five and her first Saturday job playing in Welsh national costume for afternoon tea at Bentalls Department Store aged fourteen. At 16 she won a Foundation Scholarship to the Royal College of Music, studying under the renowned Spanish harpist, Marisa Robles, and has since appeared as a soloist and chamber music player and free-lance orchestral musician throughout the UK. She was a member of the London Debussy Trio and founder member and director of the chamber ensemble Arpege. She has played in concerts at the Southbank, Wigmore Hall, St James’s Palace and at Buckingham Palace in the presence of HRH Princess Anne. She is currently one of the harpists playing for afternoon tea at the Stafford Hotel, Piccadilly.

Her travels with her harp have taken her to Europe and the USA , across the seas to the Mediterranean island of Gozo, and to the top of Tower Bridge.

Christina has played for the Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford, has recorded under the Naxos label and broadcast for Radio 3.
