Christen Stephens has over fifteen years of experience on flute and near as many on piano playing for weddings, social events, and in concerts and musical productions. She has also done studio recording projects involving composition and improvisation, and can be heard on several albums. In addition to being classically trained, she can play jazz, Celtic, and popular music, and improvise in a variety of styles. She currently performs as a soloist and as a chamber musician in Colorado.
Christen has a Bachelor of Music Education from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where she graduated magna cum laude and earned her K-12 teaching license. There she studied under Mark Thomas, an international soloist and founder of the National Flute Association. She also studied flute under JoAnne Evans, Irene Maddox, Jennifer Dior, and Valerie Simosko.
What to Expect
If you are planning a wedding, I offer a free wedding music consultation where I will play for you and help you select the perfect music. During your wedding or event planning process, I will keep in touch with you through email and be available to answer your questions. I welcome specific ideas and music requests, or you can leave the planning to me and I'll make it happen. I'm happy to suggest ensembles, music selections, budgeting, or any questions you may have, so feel free to contact me.
During your event you can expect us to be friendly and professional. During more casual events I often accommodate special music requests from the guests. I enjoy the honor and privilege of being a part of your wedding day or special event.
All we require is a location where we will be heard that is out of the way of guests. For outdoor weddings or louder indoor events, we may bring an amp and require a power outlet. We also may request chairs.
