More about Christina

Christina attended the University of Sheffield, graduating in 2008 with an honours degree in Law. She has since, however, pleaded guilty to the charge that music is her passion. She has performed regularly as a soloist for The Yorkshire Philharmonic Choir and Harrogate Choral Society, impressing other soloists of truly international renown with her assured performances and can be heard on several compact discs recorded with Yorkshire based choirs. Her solo works include Jenkins Requiem,  Durufle Requiem, Handel Messiah,  Jenkins The Peacemakers, Faure Requiem , Schubert Mass in B Flat, and her Operatic roles have included Sophia in Edward German Tom Jones,  Hippolyta in Britten Midsummer Night’s Dream, and most recently the role of Katherine in the world Premier of the new opera by Michael Wolters Ava’s Wedding.

The future is therefore bright for Christina Jones – a local name to watch out for on the national and international stage. She is presently studying under Anne Dawson at Birmingham Conservatoire where she is completing her Post Graduate studies and receives coaching from Stephen Barlow, Philip White, and Robin Bowman among others. 

Christina is becoming ever more popular as a soloist, delighting audiences in recital series in the UK with her wide ranging repertoire.
