Art songs mean something to everybody, they talk about ordinary human emotions that we all experience, but don’t always talk about. Christine creates stories and atmosphere that offer a moment to pause and reflect.
On the recital platform Christine has performed at venues including: Close-Up Series at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, Mill Hill Music Society, Proms at St Jude’s, the Late Shift at the National Portrait Gallery with ENO, Blackheath Halls and Southwark Cathedral. Christine was also selected to take part in an intensive week of masterclasses with Malcolm Martineau.
