Christina Ebersohl

Violist Christina Ebersohl is widely recognized for performances that combine fearless imagination and warm maturity. Joël Belgique, principal violist of the Oregon Symphony, has praised Christina as amazing and exciting. Her “talent alone is not enough….she’s inspiring.”

Christina has been the recipient of numerous scholarships and acknowledgements, including the Gilman International Study Scholarship, the Debbie Boldrick Music Scholarship, the National Federation of Music Clubs Scholarship, the National Federation of the Blind National Scholarship Program, the Gladys C. Anderson Memorial Scholarship through the American Foundation for the Blind, and Portland State University’s Dean’s Award for Excellence and College of the Arts Scholarship. Christina’s charismatic presence also lends to the stage as a lecturer and motivational speaker; most recently, she spoke at the 2017 PDXTalks on perseverance in her talk “How to Change a Lightbulb.” Furthermore, Christina is a respected musicology writer. In 2018, she was named one of the top seven research papers in the world as The Undergraduate Awards’ Regional Winner.

A passionate advocate, Christina mentors young students and educates institutions on music education for those with disabilities. Inspired by her own experiences as a blind musician, she has spoken at the New Music Gathering, the Lamont Colloquium, the Music Library Association, and the College Music Society National Conference on accessibility and opening doors for musicians with disabilities.

In addition to her performance and advocacy work, Christina is also ABME's first blind Licensed Body Mapping Educator. She works directly with students to develop healthy movement practices to prevent injuries and promote long, sustainable careers.

Christina studied under Joël Belgique and Kenji Bunch during her undergraduate years, and completed her Masters in Music Performance under the tutelage of Basil Vendryes at the Lamont School of Music in Denver, Colorado.

Currently, Christina is pursuing her Performance Certificate at Lamont and serves as Editor for the Journal of the American Viola Society.
