Christina is now a harpist who specialises in playing for weddings. As both the daughter and the mother of professional musicians, music has always been a special part of her life.
Christina gave her first concert aged 5 and was a pupil at the prestigious Purcell School. 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, chamber music player and free-lance orchestral musician throughout the UK. She was a member of the London Debussy Trio and founder of the chamber ensemble Arpège. Christina’s versatility as a harpist makes her equally at home playing on the concert platforms of the Southbank and Wigmore Hall, for functions at Buckingham Palace, wedding ceremonies and receptions, or 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. She plays a gold Horngacher concert harp.
Drawing on her many different experiences, Christina is able to help each couple find the music to give their day the perfect finishing touch.
Christina is also a fully qualified music therapist.
