Originally from San Jose, California, Ms. Gendler’s first instrument was the trombone, which she played from fifth grade through her undergraduate education at University of California, Santa Cruz. It was there that she discovered her love of singing and went on to earn her Bachelor of Music in Operatic Vocal Performance in 2008. Claire was later awarded a scholarship to California Institute of the Arts where she did graduate studies, also in Operatic Vocal Performance. This recital is the culmination of her graduate education. Ms. Gendler teaches voice and science in Oakland. In her spare time, Claire performs as a stilt dancer with Daring Arts Movement.
