Chris discovered the celtic harp while going to Renaissance Festivals in the early 1990's with her kids. Then some friends took her to the Alexandria Scottish games in the summer of 1994, and she won the "So You Always Wanted to Play the Harp" Contest sponsored by the Washington Area Folk Harp Society. The prize was the free use of a celtic harp for a year! She started taking lessons from Linda Titolo, who along with her husband, Roger Cornell, also helped her get her first harp. She later studied with Charlotte Roe to learn more about this beautiful instrument. She has been playing celtic harp ever since, and loves sharing music with anyone who wants to listen!

Chris plays her harp for afternoon teas, senior center concerts, retirement parties, memorial ceremonies, weddings, and other special events. She also teaches beginner harp and has harps for rent. She is a past member of Trillium, a harp, flute and fiddle trio, and is currently a member of Heatherwood, a harp ensemble. She is also a member of the Washington Area Folk Harp Society, WAFHS.
