Christina’s versatility as a musician has developed through her many musical interests and experiences gathered in Australia and in Europe. She enjoys the challenge of unusual repertoire for the violin as well as working together with other musicians through chamber and orchestral music.

Christina began her music learning through the Early Childhood music education program at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Influential teachers at this time were Lyn Williams and the Sydney Children’s Choirs, Petra Davis and later, Sophie Rowell at the Australian Institute of Music. Christina was a music scholar at St. Catherine’s School and participated in the pre-tertiary Access Program at the Sydney Conservatorium through which she began her studies with Assoc. Prof. Dr. Goetz Richter.

Christina completed her Bachelor of Music with First Class Honours in 2009 at the Sydney Conservatorium. During her undergraduate years, Christina was a member of the Australian Youth Orchestras, participating in many different programs from 2005 until 2009. Christina was a finalist of the Kendall National Violin Competition in 2008. Through her work with the Bloodwood String Quartet she travelled to Singapore as well as performing at the Townsville Chamber Music Festival in 2008 and 2009 and in versatile performances throughout Sydney and regional NSW. Christina also participated in the Sydney Symphony’s Sinfonia program from 2007 until 2010.

Christina moved to Germany in 2010 and was accepted into a Performance Master’s degree at the Freiburg Musikhochschule, studying with Prof. Magdalena Rezler. Over the next few years she participated in masterclasses with Kolja Blacher, Muriel Cantoreggi, Ingulf Turban, Christian Ostertag and Tanja Becker-Bender, Sophia Jaffé as well as the Ensemble Recherche.

Since moving to Europe, Christina has taken part in a wide variety of orchestral activity. From 2016 to 2018 she was contracted as Principle First Violin with the Freiburg Philharmonic performing both symphonic and opera programs. Christina spent one season as an intern with the Stuttgart Philharmonic in 2012/13, touring with the orchestra to Milan. In 2014/15 Christina was a permanent member of the Folkwang Chamber Orchestra in Essen, introducing her to a wide range of repertoire, soloists and conductors in Europe. Christina has also performed casually with the Basel Chamber Orchestra, Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz and the Baden Baden Philharmonie.

Christina’s enthusiasm for violin teaching lead her to study a second Masters degree in Music Pedagogy, studying with Julia Schröder and Tini Schreiber in Freiburg. She currently holds a teaching contract at the Freiburg Musikhochschule and was assistant teacher to Professor Julia Schröder in 2018.
