Verified profile
Claire is versatile cellist and string arranger living in Suffolk. Performing as a soloist and as one half of Duetto Arpeggione.

Claire was born and grew up in Leicestershire. Following completion of her training as a classical cellist in London, she relocated to Suffolk, spending time in the classroom before returning to 'doing' rather than 'teaching'. Claire enjoys the diversity of performing in a range of styles and collaborating with other performers in live and recorded mediums. Recent performance work include performing with the Prometheus Orchestra and as one half of Duetto Arpeggione. She also performed recently in a charity gala with Ruthie Henshall and Kerry Ellis. Arranging work includes collaborations with Snippet on the recent album 'Future Melancholy Pop Music' (Listen to the track 'Some Kid' in my media) and with Alex Highton on his forthcoming album 'Welcome to Happiness'.

Claire arrived on time and was flexible with the set length and repertoire. Her playing was outstanding and the crowd loved her. We had an upbeat wedding and her use of the the electric cello with loop pedal was awesome. Highly, highly recommended!
