Christine Sticher

Principal double bass

Christine Sticher is a true music nomad. Growing up in Germany, she took part in her towns' vivid music making as a guitarist and as a trombone player. When she picked up the double bass at age 16, the town became too small. She studied double bass and Violone at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria and at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, Netherlands.

Christine's career covers many genres, but given all these fine bass lines she is clearly favouring the baroque.
