Blue Violin (Christopher Vuk)
Described by the Boston Ballet as an “Electrifying violinist,” Christopher made his New York debut at Weil Recital, Carnegie Hall, and has performed with distinguished artists such as Gloria Estefan, Paul Simon, and Jennifer Holliday as well as a special appearance with John Mayer, and Sesame Street.
“Vuk explore[s] different ways of sparking musical interest,” says Boston Globe. In doing so, he has played for varied audiences including George H.W. Bush, Queen Rainia of Jordan, Queen Noor, Mitt Romney, and First Lady, Laura Bush.
With a unique style all his own, Vuk uses a series of loops and sequences to translate a myriad of sounds all onto a single violin. Imagine an entire violin concerto played on one violin, or a 12-multi-tracked sequence of Olivia Rodrigo’s Vampire or Don’t Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult. Vuk finds inventive ways to translate nearly any instrument or sound onto a solitary violin.
Christopher is a member of the Red Bull Artsehcro, which performed the world premiere of Raul Yanez’s ‘Concerto for Turntable’ in Isaac Stern Auditorium, Carnegie Hall.
He has toured with internationally acclaimed recording artist/composer Tim Janis, Fionnuala Gill (Riverdance), Orla Fallon (Celtic Woman) and EMI recording artists Giorgia Fumanti and Ryland Angel.
Christopher is the founder/1st violinist of the Boston String Quartet, a contemporary classical ensemble.
Christopher has collaborated on several albums for former Scorpions member Robin McAuley, GRAMMY-Winning Turtle Island Quartet, Jeanette Olsson from GLEE!, Jamey Haddad, and Dave Fiuczynski.
He has conducted hundreds of contemporary string playing clinics with over 10,000 high school students nationwide through his work with the Boston String Quartet.
