Chaconne Klaverenga -- she's 23 years old and we've heard her several times over the past five years or so here on PT and I think every time so far I've described her as a fine young guitarist, but Chaconne Klaverenga is now moving from being really good for her age to simply really good at what she does!

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 already as a performer. 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 for 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
On behalf of the Indiana Society of Classical Guitar I would like to offer many thanks to you for a magnificent concert last night. 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. We look forward to watching as your promising career continues to develop.

A real talent -- glad to feature her sound on PT and I suspect we’ll hear much, much more from her in the years to come!
