In 2003, Christopher came to Mainz, Germany, on the exchange program of the VDAC as a nominee of Dartmouth College. It is not every day that one has the good fortune of becoming acquainted with someone of such unusual character, with such a zest for life and such incredible musical talent. Christopher made sure to stay in touch with us over the years, attending our events when his schedule permitted and inspiring group after group of our students. He will be missed.
