As a violinist since the age of 5 and the youngest in a musical family, Clara has lived her life surrounded by the arts, and especially classical music. During her time as a UTK student, she served as the co-founder and co-president of the Black Musicians Alliance, bringing awareness to underrepresented composers, performers, and musicians to the UTK School of Music community and the Knoxville community at-large.
Clara is Haitian-American and considers Knoxville her home. Since moving to the scruffy city, WUOT has been a constant source of news and entertainment for her and her family. Clara was named Afternoon Concert host in May of 2021.
