Music can lighten the holiday blues, bring warm feelings to a cold winter day and calm to a stressful time. Christina Cotruvo will play and discuss the American-Celtic harp, the high-tech harp ukulele and a therapy harp, and she will share the history of the songs she performs from a variety of genres and how they work toward wellness.
Christina resides in Duluth and is a certified clinical musician who uses these unique instruments and her voice in community music groups, memory care facilities, and one-on-one patient therapeutic music services, focusing on the wellness intent of good vibrations.
Inspired by living on the shores of Lake Superior, she publishes No-C-Notes audio music description for those with visual impairment, is the leader of Duluth Ukulele Community Strum, teaches harp and ukulele, and provides seminars on therapeutic music.
