Christina is the author of two stories that have been set to music and turned into chamber music concerts for children.  The music for both pieces was composed by Alexis Alrich, who harmoniously combined Chinese and Western classical instruments.  The pieces were commissioned by Premiere Performances of Hong Kong, a classical music outreach charity, and premiered at the Asia Society.
