Chaconne Klaverenga

"The program and the artistry were both world class. You had the entire audience captivated from the first note to the last with your strong stage presence and your confident yet nuanced interpretations."

Dr. John Alvarado, Trustee Lecturer of Guitar for the Department of Music and Arts Technology, Indiana University Purdue University

"She’s simply flawless!"

Maestra JoAnn Falletta, Conductor and Music Director, Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra


"Rarely do I ever encounter a young artist like Chaconne Klaverenga. She has technique to spare, virtuosity and an amazing amount of experience. Judging by what she has done so far -- the sky is the limit! I highly recommend her for recitals, chamber music and orchestral solo appearances. It was a pleasure working with her on the premiere of Rene Shiffer's concerto written specifically for her. It is a piece that audiences will adore."
Maestro Nicholas Palmer, Conductor and Music Director, Lafayette Symphony Orchestra and Owensboro Symphony Orchestra
