The most recent addition to the WildKat PR client roster is none other than the highly innovative pianist, curator and commissioner Christina McMaster.
Her continually growing reputation for bold and vivacious performances has allowed to her to collaborate with a diverse mix of genres and artists, including violinist Lizzie Ball, rapper Tor Cesay, Director Richard Williams, actors from Central Saint Martin’s and a number of designers for London Fashion week.
Upon graduating with a first from the Royal Academy of Music, where she studied with Joanna MacGregor, Christina has continued to perform extensively in major venues across Europe including at the Southbank Centre, Kings Place and Aldeburgh Festival. She is also a champion of new music, having worked with established composers such as Sir Harrison Birtwistle, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Tansy Davies and Stephen Montague as well as emerging composers – collaborating most recently with Freya Waley-Cohen and Richard Bullen.
Recently Christina founded Ensemble WOW, an organisation that is dedicated to promoting equality through unique and imaginative programming – a cause of which Christina is a strong supporter. They are very proud to be Listenpony’s ensemble in residence, with a concert coming up at The Rag Factory on 2nd March 2015. The concert will include a variety of works evoking music’s engagement with current affairs – war, rebellion and civil rights as well as the spirituality and solidarity that surround these powerful events.
Also in March, Christina will be heading to Barbados for the Holders Season where she will play an eclectic programme that captures the essence of the American Dream. She will be joined by violinist Lizzie Ball and they will play tracks from Christina’s upcoming album Pinks and Blues which is due to be released in May.
But before she jets off, you can see Christina performing Debussy, Ruth Crawford-Seeger, Charles Ives and Beethoven with the Derby Chamber Music Society on 20th February at 7:30pm.
