Lindsay, Christine C.
Christine Lindsay, 93, died October 24, 2017. Born in Washington, D.C., she began studying the piano at the age of 9. She performed as a concert pianist from the age of 15, at such places as the Phillips Collection and the National Gallery of Art. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, she was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to study in France at the Paris Conservatory of Music. She moved to the Binghamton area in 1951, and became a frequent soloist with the Binghamton Symphony. In the late 1960s, she took up the harpsichord and played many solo recitals and in chamber groups, as well as with jazz bassist Slam Stewart. Christine taught harpsichord for seven years at Binghamton University, and gave private piano lessons until 2005. Heartfelt thanks to Marion Steika, her superb caregiver for the past year, and also remembering Jennifer Hopkins, who has a gift with the elderly. Christine was predeceased by her husband, Dr. Kenneth C. Lindsay, in 2009. She is survived by her son, Guy (Shari) of Middletown, Conn., and her daughter, Jennifer (Mark Tevelow), of Vestal, New York.
