Christina is one of the few coloraturas that could sing the challenging ‘Symphony of the Danube’”
– Jan Žemla, Director of Janáček Philharmonic Orchestra
Christina has the best voice for Film Music in Rudolfinum Concert Hall. Her classical version of Titanic was the best I have heard!”
- Nikola Bojcev, Organiser of Film Music Prague
Christina Johnston is said by many to be one of a kind in the music world. Despite her young age she is already making a name for herself in the classical sphere with a vocal range that most could only dream of. She has toured in Europe, Asia and South America and counts Presidents and State Officials amongst her biggest fans.
The stunning debut album ‘Blessing’, released on 22nd September - consists of a mix of highly popular opera arias plus some rarities that were totally suited to her high soprano voice.
These include selections by Mozart, Rachmaninov, Puccini, Bellini, Dvorak, Gounod, Handel, Grieg, Johann Strauss, Canteloube and the notoriously difficult arias ‘Der Hölle Rache’ from The Magic Flute and ‘Bell Song’ from Lakmé by Delibes. On the album, Christina displays her gift for languages by singing in no fewer than nine, including English, German, Latin, Russian, French, Italian, Czech, Norwegian and the French dialect Occitan.
