ABOUT ME

Born into a family of musicians, cellist Clara Abel found a delight for music at a young age. Her particular love of chamber music led her to study at Juilliard with the legendary cellist of the Juilliard String Quartet, Joel Krosnick. She has performed at chamber music festivals such as Kneisel Hall, Clasclás International Music Festival, and the Juilliard String Quartet Seminar, and as a member of the Kahlo Quartet she was chosen for Juilliard’s Honors Chamber Music Program.

 

Clara made her New York concerto debut in 2015 playing Dvořák's Cello Concerto, and recently performed both Haydn cello concertos with the Arts at All Saints Orchestra. As a young artist competition winner she has performed the concertos of Elgar, Lalo, Tchaikovsky, Goltermann and Vivaldi with orchestras throughout the midwest.

 

She is a substitute cellist with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and New York Classical Players. Her performances as a solo, chamber and orchestral musician have been heard on medici.tv, BBC, CBS, and NPR. Clara enjoys performing for all types of audiences, and plays in a variety of musical languages including improvisation, crossover, and historical performance.
