Clarice Assad


Composer in Residence | Allentown Symphony Orchestra

I am so happy to share that I will be the composer-in-residence for the Allentown Symphony Orchestra for the next two years and that we already started on an inspiring note! For more information, please visit our dedicated page for this event and check out our interview below! Coming soon, I will be premiering my concerto PLAY! with Third Coast Percussion in Santa Rosa, CA!  A few years in the works, this piece includes narration, technology and a whole lot more.  We are so excited to see it come to life. Stay tuned for more updates, and thank you for being here! Lots of love, Clarice
