Download MP3

Clara Dyson is an 18-year-old oboist who recently graduated from Ashland High School and is now attending Oberlin College in Ohio. In this episode of On Deck, Clara chats with Raúl Gómez-Rojas about her experience growing up in Ashland, playing in youth orchestra and transferring skills learned in music to other aspects of her life. While she is not fully decided yet, Clara plans to major in a STEM-related subject and potentially minor in music. Outside of music, Clara likes to draw and sew. She was captain of her high school’s robotics team, and principal oboe in the Youth Symphony of Southern Oregon. She is also a recent winner of the Concerto Competition at YMA: Young Musicians and Artists.
