Clare is an English cellist.
She is a founder member of the acclaimed ensemble Chroma and works with, amongst others, Lontano, the Harborough Collective, Aurora, Marais Ensemble and London Contemporary Orchestra.
She set up and curates Chroma’s series of chamber music concerts in Berkhamsted, experimenting with varying instrumental line-ups, and mixing music with poetry and storytelling to add another dimension to the concert going experience.
Clare has been involved with the commissioning of new music in Chroma, working closely with such composers as Rolf Hind, Philip Cashian, Michael Zev Gordon, Raymod Yiu, Jo Cutler and Anna Meredith. For her own Berkhamsted series she has commissioned pieces from Leonardo Margutti and Luke Bedford as well as a piece of music and words from Patrick Sherwen and Dominic Shovelton.
She has programmed and produced CHROMA’s first own label album ‘Folk Tales’, due out in Autumn 2015, which she conceived and recorded with Chroma artists David Le Page and Ian Watson.
