With some free time on my hands as I self-isolate at home, I have taken the opportunity to revisit my songwriting skills. This is purely an artistic outlet for me, which I have pursued since I was a teen. Have a look at the videos page to check out what I came up with.

Obviously the Coronavirus outbreak has affected us all, and whilst I am fortunate to still have my position at Nationaltheater Mannheim, all performances with immediate effect have been cancelled. At the moment, this enforced break is until April 19, at which point more information will be forthcoming. Stay strong and healthy, and be good to each other. Christopher xx
