ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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. 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.
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.

“Christa has a great sound. I work with orchestras all over the world and so it's rare that I'll notice and single out the harpist for their technique and talent. Christa is a total pro with amazing technique and sound.”
Jack Wall, Composer, Conductor and Executive Producer of Video Games Live

"Christa is one of only a handful of harpists that I insist on having in the orchestra whenever we're close. She is a consummate professional, sensitive musician and a delight to know personally."
Scott Lavender, Composer/Arranger and Music Director for Johnny Mathis

"Be it classical or jazz, it takes little time to realize what a precious musician Christa Grix is."
Michael G. Nastos, Music Critic
