Christina G Papadopoulou (1990) grew up in a musical family in Greece. She started playing the piano at the age of six with her mother, Maya Papadopoulou, with whom she continued her studies at the Sychrono Conservatory of Thessaloniki. In 2016 she graduated with excellence from the University of Macedonia in BA classical piano performance with Professor Uwe Matschke. She caught on early with the discipline in music and became a very hard-working addition to the family of musicians.

She has been awarded prizes for her chamber music performances as well as performing in numerous concert halls in Greece. She also struggled with hand injuries which was a tough, but evolving experience. Her incredible mentor, pianist & Alexander Technique teacher Christos Noulis, helped her to get back stronger than before. However, the classical music education until then seemed to limit her. That is when the music of jazz presented itself to her.  In 2017, she moved to The Netherlands to start another bachelor’s degree in jazz vocals at the Prince Claus Conservatorium in Groningen.

Her main jazz influences are Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Chet Baker, Dianne Reeves & Al Jarreau.


As a jazz singer she has performed in a lot of productions and venues both as a soloist and with orchestras and bands. She is fascinated by singing with other voices which she explored in her Balkan trio Epiklisis. Eventually she found that one of her passions in music is to combine her roots and her background; Balkan, Jazz & Classical. Through "Classical Infusion Project" in 2022(*see project section) she created her own band, Christina G Quintet, performing in the Netherlands and Germany. The repertoire is based on her original compostitions but also arrangements of famous jazz standards.

Since 2016 she's been active in teaching piano and vocals(music schools and private), performing, conducting and accompanying choirs. To name a few:
