ASSAD IS A SYMPHONIC AND CHAMBER MUSIC COMPOSER, PIANIST, ARRANGER, PRODUCER, VOCALIST AND EDUCATOR whose music defies categorization.

Described by GRAMOPHONE as "One of Brazil's brightest young composers" and by the LA Times as a "Dazzling vocal soloist," Assad is an all-round musician. Also an avid educator, Clarice's mission is to connect, inspire and empower people through music. Read More
