Ariel Clayton Karas

Violinist, (Self-Employed!) in Cleveland

In "The Dilemma of a Modern Violinist," professional violinist Ariel Clayton Karas chronicles humorous aspects of her musical journey and addresses the challenges classical musicians face with a genre long-considered to be "high art." Her presentation unfolds simply through all-text slides paired with a rotating soundtrack of music clips. Through "The Dilemma of the Modern Violinist," Ariel hopes new listeners will be inspired, and that "the keepers of this beautiful, unique genre of music never lose sight of its power to connect, not separate."

Inspirational Coincidences

BY RACHEL MASON
@ VOL 2 ON OCT 16, 2014

Rachel Mason talks, sings, and strums about the place where art and life, or fiction and reality meet... While doing research for a musical performance and rock opera to get inside the mind of a child killer from the 1930's, she made contact with a man who killed and dismembered a boy in Borough Park. The experience profoundly effected her, and inspired her to write an opera incidentally about a coincidence - two men with the same name Hamilton Fish, died a day apart and their deaths were announced on a single front page. One man was a child-killing sadist, the other a politician from a distinguished political family.
