Christian Halstead

Christian began learning the violin with his mother when he was 5. He attended Junior and Senior Royal College of Music, where he studied with Dona Lee Croft. He is a freelance player, having performed with several orchestras on both modern and Baroque violin.

Recently he undertook a tour of China, where he played the 'Lark Ascending' in several concerts with the Kent Sinfonia to much acclaim. He has been invited to make a return trip next year. Christian also leads the Abraxas Ensemble.
