Christoph Kalis

After graduating in mechanical engineering in Hamburg last October, Chris left his German homeland to come to New Zealand for new challenges.  He has played in orchestras since he was 11 years old and now is happy to be playing in AYO.  He loves being part of a community where individuals perform together and create something bigger than the sum of its parts.

“Music is the inarticulate speech of the heart, which cannot be compressed into words, because it is infinite.” – Richard Wagner
