Canadian violinist Christina Bouey is hailed by The New York Times for playing “beautifully,” described by the New York Post reviewer as having “spun out…[a] shimmering tune,” such that “I thought I died and went to heaven,” and by Opera News, for playing “with exquisite, quivering beauty.” Her top awards include the Hugo Kortchak Award for outstanding achievement in chamber music, Heida Hermann International, Canadian National Music Festival, Queens Concerto Competition, and the Balsam Duo Competition.
Christina graduated from Manhattan School of Music (2013) with a Professional Studies Certificate in Orchestral Performance, studying with Glenn Dicterow and Lisa Kim, a Professional Studies Certificate (2012), studying with Laurie Smukler, and in 2011, a Master of Music while studying with Nicholas Mann. Her Bachelor of Music (magna cum laude) is from The Boston Conservatory where she studied with Irina Muresanu.
In June 2014, as part of the 150-year celebrations on Prince Edward Island, professional dancers from Ballet Jazz de Montreal performed a modern dance to her first compositional commission for solo violin, with Christina performing on the violin. Christina is currently serving as concertmaster of the Cayuga Chamber Orchestra, and is a member/founder of the Ulysses String Quartet. She plays the 1728 “Artot” Stradivarius on generous loan from the Juilliard School. Christina’s debut album will be released later this year and includes the premiere of her own composition “Orpheus Romps Through The Underworld,” as well as the violin sonata “The Tempest” by Grammy nominated composer Joseph Summer.
