My Bio

Currently the Program Aid for Central Library and Instrumental Music Specialist, Christa has been consistently described as the Fiddle Chick in the music field.   Born in Evansville, IN, she began her classical violin studies at the age of eight.  Following her studies through various avenues, her performances have led her overseas and across the United States.  Eventually growing a strong interest in the diverse styles of music she began to work with Tales and Scales, a children’s music telling company, as a Teaching Artist.  Working with Tales and Scales gave her the opportunity to join local session groups and learn various forms of music such as Jazz, Appalachian folk, Old-Time, and eventually Celtic traditional.  As the former Assistant Director of Education of the Evansville Philharmonic, she also worked to encourage tri-state youth within enjoyable instrumental music activities such as the Evansville Philharmonic Youth Orchestra I and II, Young Artists Competition, Lollipop Concerts and Symphony of Color.  As a former member and founder of Rowan Tree, a traditional Irish band, she toured Ireland as an accompanying musician with the University of Southern Indiana’s Chamber Choir in May of 2008; giving her the opportunity to further her studies in Irish traditional music for fiddle.   Now she works to further instrumental music outreach as well as a love for reading within the community. 


2006 Evansville Living Magazine voted Sunday evenings with Rowan Tree at Penny Lane Coffee House "The Best Place to Spend a Sunday Evening.”


She is currently pursuing her Bachelor of Arts in History and a Master’s in Library Science.
