Ariel Clayton Karas
I'm a classically trained violinist and independent professional performing artist based in northeast Ohio! Via my ensemble, OPUS 216, and as director of Classical Revolution Cleveland, I give over 120+ performances yearly in my community and throughout the United States. As a music educator, I work in urban, grant-funded programs and keep a private studio of violin students. When I'm not busy performing or teaching, I'm usually cooking!

@ VOL 27
ON FEB 18, 2016
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."
