Claudia has had an interest in the creative arts from a young age, however piano and voice quickly became her passion. Aged 16, Claudia was accepted into the State’s only specialist music secondary school: The Sydney Conservatorium High School. At this stage, Claudia also discovered a love for composition, and was placed under the instruction of Dr. Trevor Pearce.
During her time at the Conservatorium High School, Claudia performed for, was adjudicated and conducted by Carl Vine, George Palmer and Dr. Carolyn Watson. She had also participated and received awards in the Sydney Eisteddfod and the Carlsbad Music Festival. Claudia has also been involved in a number of master-classes, most notably with the German vocal quintet- AMARCORD.
Claudia has performed with The NSW Public School Singers (2009-2011), School Spectacular Central Choir (2010) and The Sydney Philharmonia Choirs (2011), alongside the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, American voice actor John De Lancie, soprano Elizabeth Scott and under the baton of conductor and pianist Vladimir Ashkenazy.
Claudia has been on stage with UK Pianist Kerry Yong, Sydney Symphony’s Associate Concert Master Kirsten Williams and Australian soprano Jacqueline Porter. Her compositions have also been broadcasted on Fine Music 2MBS FM, as a part of their Young Virtuosi program (2013, 2014 and 2016), Sydney Eisteddfod programs (2013) and through the Elizabethans Trust’s “Academy of Chamber Music” aired performances (2014).
