Violinist-violist hybrid Christine Wu has been hailed for her “strikingly bold sound” and “technical facility” (Theater Jones), and performs internationally with recent appearances in Sendai, New York City, Magdeburg, and Berlin. Recently, she was named a recipient of an Audience Prize at the 8th Sendai International Music Competition, and she presented a program of works by women and black composers for solo violin and solo viola as one of six finalists for the inaugural Berlin Prize for Young Artists competition. As a chamber musician, Christine has performed and collaborated with Joseph Silverstein, Mark Steinberg, Nicholas Mann, and David Geber. Leadership roles as concertmaster culminated most recently with the New York String Orchestra in their 50th Anniversary celebration at Carnegie Hall.
Christine studied at the Manhattan School of Music, The Juilliard School and Cleveland Institute of Music with Sylvia Rosenberg, Nicholas Mann, Masao Kawasaki, and Jaime Laredo. She also holds a minor in Business Management from Case Western Reserve University.
