There is no charge for this concert, but there is a retiring collection, to which we ask you to give generously! The revenue from this recital will go towards fundraising for Christina's school trip to Cambodia this summer. It will contribute to local philanthropic projects, which include teaching in schools as well as the development of an infrastructure to tackle plastic pollution and other issues in the area.
You can give by cash or card at the concert, or through Christina’s fundraising page at https://gofund.me/3b4d8a7d.
All our concerts are held in the church at 83 Portsmouth Road.
The main entrance to the free parking is in Millmead Terrace which is accessed from Bury Fields at the end of Lawn Road.
Christina Huang is a 17-year-old student at Guildford High School who holds a double award as a music and academic scholar.
Music has been an integral part of Christina’s life since a young age, beginning her musical journey at the piano aged 6. She is also a proficient violinist and singer but has ultimately found her calling within the ebony and ivory keys. Sailing through ABRSM exams with distinctions has culminated in her most recent achievement of attaining the DipABRSM qualification in piano performance in 2019.
Since then, she has enjoyed expanding her repertoire and has given various recitals live and online. Christina has also participated at music festivals, where her performances were praised for exceptional communicative skills and dazzling technique. In 2018, she was awarded ‘most promising young performer’ at the Guildford Spring Music Festival by pianist Lucy Parham and in 2021, winning silver prize in the International London Youth Piano Competition.
Alongside her frequent piano solo concerts, Christina is equally at home in orchestral settings, performing regularly with Guildford High School and the Guildford Youth Symphony Orchestra. A keen chamber musician, she now enjoys performing on the viola, an instrument she took up during lockdown 2020. As a singer, she is a part of various choirs at school. She also enjoys musical theatre, having taken part in productions of ‘Oliver!’ and ‘Bugsy Malone’ during the earlier years of her secondary school education.
At her local church, Christina regularly performs with the mass band, exploring contemporary and popular styles.
Currently, she is studying for her A-Levels in English Literature, History, Maths and Further Maths. Other than her interests in music, she enjoys debating and public speaking, participating regularly in competitions, including Model United Nations and ARTiculation. This summer, she will be attending the national forum of the European Youth Parliament.
