Claire Chase wins MacArthur!!!

October 2, 2012

Those of you who follow this blog regularly are likely familiar with IPAP favorite Claire Chase, the ever-increasingly legendary flutist and founder of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE). We couldn’t be more pleased about this. As you know, things usually first happen here on IPAP so, at the bottom of the article, underneath the photo, there are additional links to our past features on Claire, including an extensive interview conducted last year by Laura Lentz. Congratulations again to this amazing musician and person!
