Cristina states, “Pianist Bob Solone and I did our first two concerts of spontaneously composed music at the International Urantia conference in Brunswick, Maine in 1987. We had only met two nights before, and felt we were ready to perform in front of an audience. The first performance was attended by half the conference, about 300 attendees. A few nights later we were asked to do a second performance and twice as many attended. This is when the magic happened. I remember playing a long note on the violin. It was as if the music of the angels was coming into our heads, through our fingers, then out from our hearts to the audience. Both our lives were permanently changed. Now I knew why I was on earth, who I am, and what to do. My ultimate life goal is to uplift people spiritually through music composition, performance, and education in a way that is loving and giving, which inspires others to give and love.”
“The Urantia Book helps me by encouraging me to be exactly who I am in partnership with God. The unique creativity and gifts that I have are from this communion. I enjoy the creativity and obedience equally, approaching God as a child in awe.”
‘The highest mission of any art is by its intention to foreshadow a higher universal reality, to crystallize the emotions of time into thoughts of eternity.’
