EPISODE DESCRIPTION

CHRISTA GRIX

Christa fell under the spell of the harp during her first lesson at 16. Two years earlier,
she was transfixed by live jazz during a performance at her high school. The two
influences have shaped, but not limited her explorations and accomplishments on the
instrument.
Equally adept as both a classical and jazz harpist, she is one of those rare individuals
who can make the transition from the jazz rhythm section to the symphonic string
section sound effortless. The appeal and respect her music generates has taken her
throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe as an invited soloist and clinician at all the
major harp festivals and conferences.
Christa released her first jazz harp recording, freefall, in 1996, on the Freefall Music label.
Her second recording, Cheek to Chic was released in 2002. She is the President and CEO
of Freefall Music, and founder of ArtnHarp, a division of Freefall Music.
She currently sits on the board of the Detroit Musicians Fund, and is a past board member
and executive committee member of the American Harp Society.
Upcoming national and international appearances include performances at the 2010
Conference of the American Harp Society in Tacoma, Washington, and the 2011 meeting
of the World Harp Congress in Vancouver, British Columbia.
