Christina is a second-generation harpist who began playing harp at the age of four. She received music and education degrees from the University of Vermont and also studied harp at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria, and at McGill University in Montreal. As an international recording and touring artist, she has concertized extensively. She is an active workshop organizer and has been instrumental in the revival of the folk harp since the early '70s. In 1982, she founded the Scottish Harp Society of America and is the founder and director of the International Harp Therapy Program established in 1995.
Since 1991, Christina Tourin has released over a dozen music CDs on her own Emerald Harp Productions label, which she sells through her website ($15 average). She also offers “therapy harps” (“packages starting at only $391”), including a signature Christina Therapy Harp, from $1131.
