At 16, Claire is already an important member of the jazz community in Boston. She writes jazz blogs for WBUR’s Artery, edits the JazzBoston newsletter, and has even had her own jazz radio show on WMFO.

Her participation in Terri Lyne Carrington’s Jazz Workshop is an honor afforded to a select group of young musicians from around the world.
