She was an Honors Royal Conservatory of Madrid graduate at age 17, a Master’s Graduate at age 23, and a published violinist-producer-songwriter-vocalist at age 26.She has worked with many renowned violinists, including Pinchas Zuckerman, performs with several Philadelphia orchestras, and received the Albert Tashjian Award for Excellence in Violin Performance in 2003, a Mention of Honor by VH1’s “Song of the Year” Competition in 2005, and was recently honored with a Diplomat Award for her work with the Dementia Society of America (2018).
Actively involved in musical theater, Claudia is an audience favorite at the Bristol Riverside Theatre. She is also a published composer of children’s musicals including Goldilocks (2015), Peter Pan (2017), Snow White (2018) and Pinocchio (2018) which have been premiered to great success at the Broadway Theatre of Pitman, NJ.
