Internationally recognized for his effortless countertenor voice, he can be heard on well over a dozen recordings on Warner Classics’ Teldec label. From 1992 until 2003, he performed with the world-renowned a cappella vocal ensemble, Chanticleer. In those 11 years he sang over 1,000 concerts world-wide, appearing with the New York Philharmonic (Emil de Cou), San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, the Atlanta Symphony,  the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, (Christopher Hogwood and Hugh Wolff), and more recently the Santa Rosa Symphony, (Jeffrey Kahane and Robert Worth) and has sung concerts in some of the world's most renown venues: The Kennedy Center (Washington D.C.), New York's Lincoln Center, as well as national concert halls across Asia and Europe, including London's Wigmore Hall. He has also appeared with the Grant Park Music Festival Orchestra in Chicago as soloist in Leonard Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms and, as a member of Chanticleer, earned two Grammy awards for the CDs Colors of Love and Lamentations and Praises by the celebrated British composer Sir John Tavener. His singing has been described as “crystalline artistry,” Cleveland Plain Dealer; “crystalline rich soprano,” Los Alamos Moniter; and as having “extraordinary range and purity,” New York Times. As an educator Christopher was on the voice faculty of his alma mater, Sonoma State University, (B.A. in Music, 1998) from 2004-2009, and continues to lead vocal workshops for choral and solo singers of all levels.

In the Spotlight

Grief and Loss Spiritual Support

Each Sunday in Room 8, starting promptly at 12:45, a facilitated support group is available to anyone experiencing grief or loss. Some people attend once; some more than once. In this safe and supportive environment, you can feel at home and free to explore your own unique journey through the grief process. You will be listened to and held in the loving, accepting awareness that Spirit is present and with us in every moment of our eternal lives.

The loss of a loved one can bring about a wide range of feelings, as can other major transitions in our lives, like ending a relationship or losing a job. Yet the journey through grief is also a spiritually rich time, allowing us to seek a closer walk with Spirit, and to open to more love from those around us.
 
If you are experiencing the complex feelings and emotions of the grief process due to the loss of a loved one or other major life transition, know that there is support for you here at the Center with your spiritual family.
 
For more information, contact Siota Belle, RScP, drsiotabelle@gmail.com or Rev. Joyce Duffala, joyce@cslsr.org.
