Christopher Leigh is one of a new breed of classical crossover artists. Unlike the majority of crossover artists, she's not a string player. A classically trained flutist with a doctorate in performance from the University of Southern Mississippi, Christopher is to the flute as Lindsey Stirling is to the violin. Her work is a fusion of classical and pop/rock. She’s transforming classical works like "Habenera" from the opera Carmen
into pure rock. You may hear other flute covers of pop/rock songs, but none rock so hard as Christopher Leigh. Check out her cover of David Essex’s “Rock On.”
And yes, that’s a flute, not an electric guitar!
