Christopher Leigh is an American flutist and classical crossover artist with a twist of pop/rock fusion. A classically trained musician, Christopher Leigh is taking music, that many find dull and boring, and kicking it into high gear!
She fuses pop/rock with traditional classical in “melodic phrases of ethereal beauty,” creating the best of both worlds. She is one of a new breed of classically trained crossover artists. What is unique about her is, unlike other crossover artists, 2Cellos, David Garrett or The Piano Guys, she is not a string player! She is to flute what Lindsey Stirling is to violin – without the stomp!
Her debut album, INFRARED, takes classical works like Habenera from the opera Carmen and transforms them into pure rock. You may hear others doing flute covers of pop/rock songs, but not like this. Check out her cover of David Essex’s “Rock On.” And yes, that’s a flute, not an electric guitar!
