Krannert Center Events: January 2016: Sphinx Competition Winner: Christine Lamprea, cello

Christine Lamprea, cello

Noted for her “supreme panache,” Colombian-American cellist Christine Lamprea was the First Prize winner of the 2013 Sphinx Competition, which supports the Sphinx Organization’s compelling mission to transform lives through the power of diversity in the arts (The Boston Musical Intelligencer).

A winner of Astral Artists’ 2013 National Auditions, Ms. Lamprea has appeared as soloist with major symphonies and has toured with the Sphinx Virtuosi across the US. Both an accomplished performer and a passionate teacher, Ms. Lamprea worked with Ecuadorian youth as part of a residency between The Juilliard School and “Sinfonia Por La Vida,” a social inclusion program modeled after Venezuela’s El Sistema program. Ms. Lamprea holds a master’s degree from the New England Conservatory, where she studied with Natasha Brofsky. Lamprea will be accompanied by Alexandre Moutouzkine on piano.

Sunday, January 31, 2016 at 3pm at Foellinger Great Hall.
