We know Christina Courtin by the three v’s: voice, viola and violin.
Here’s another apt descriptive of the Buffalo native: diverse. Not only has the Juilliard School of Music graduate appeared at such varied locations as Carnegie Hall, the Spoleto Music Festival and the Melbourne Arts Festival, she’s performed with pop stars Beyonce and Kayne West, violin superstar Yo-Yo Ma and classic rock icon Marianne Faithful.
Courtin returns home for a concert at 8 p.m. today (march 31) in the Burchfield Penney Art Center (1300 Elmwood Ave.). Opening is the S.B. Reeves Outfit. Tickets are $15 (box office, www.Ticketweb.com or call (866) 468-7619).
