Tribute Bands and Acts

A multi instrumentalist and honours graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Claire is a performer, conductor, teacher and composer.

While studying, she sang in QLD based vocal ensemble The Australian Voices (while under the direction of Stephen Leek). After graduating from the VCA majoring in horn, Claire pursued singing and playing the harp and developing her own sound in her arrangements and compositions.

Claire currently performs with the Melbourne Consort, and has various musical projects in motion, including various vocal ensembles and the occasional appearance with Melbourne brass quintet Shrewd Brass.

Her passion for singing and playing is closely followed by conducting choirs and ensembles, with a particular penchant for anything a cappella.
