Adventure and collaboration are at the heart of violinist Clara Kim’s multi-faceted career as new music performer and chamber musician. By commissioning, premiering, and championing works from living composers, Clara has quickly established herself at the forefront of her generation in the interpretation of contemporary music. She has worked with some of today’s most imaginative musical voices such as Christopher Theofanidis, Augusta Read Thomas, and the Sleeping Giant Collective, and has premiered several new concertos written for her. Clara is the first prize winner of the 2012 International Solo Violin Competition in Cremona, Italy, and also won the MPrize Chamber Arts Competition and the Concert Artists Guild Competition as a member of the Argus Quartet. As a chamber musician, she has performed at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Jordan Hall, Lincoln Center, and Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw.
