Music by Ariel Karas (Violin)
Violinist Ariel Clayton Karas enjoys a diverse career as a violinist, ensemble director, music educator, and classical music advocate. Originally from Dallas, Mrs. Clayton Karas arrived in Cleveland in the summer of 2007 to complete formal studies in violin performance at the Cleveland Institute of Music, under the direction of David and Linda Cerone, and Stephen Rose. She also received Suzuki certification through the Sato Center for Suzuki Studies by pedagogue Kimberly Meir-Sims.
Upon completion of her Masters in Violin Performance in 2011, Mrs. Clayton Karas launched into a multi-faceted career of performance and instruction, and now averages more than 120 performances annually in public, private, formal, and informal settings. As an avid session musician, she frequently records for albums featuring northeast Ohio singer-songwriters, and her recent stylings of Bach and Bruch were featured in the soundtrack of the 2015 documentary Violins of Hope, narrated by Oscar-winning actor Adrien Brody.
