She has been awarded 1st prizes at the International “Young Pianist of the North” Piano Competition, the Steinway Piano Competition, the Rotary Piano Competition and the Grotrian Steinweg Piano Competition. She received the maximum score and special awards at the highest level of the German national Young Musician competition. Clara has been especially acknowledged for her interpretations of Mozart and Haydn and was awarded the Classic Prize of the City of Munster in 2017.

In 2019, Clara became a scholarship holder of TONALi, a German initiative with which she collaborates to promote cultural education in children and young adults. She also regularly performs for Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Live in social establishments.

Clara has performed in major venues in many countries such as the Herkulessaal in Munich, the National Concert Hall in Dublin, the Musikhuset in Århus, the Gebläsehalle in Duisburg, the Cuvilliés-Theatre in Munich, the Opera House in Brunswick and the Forbidden City in Beijing. Concerts have taken Clara to China, Denmark, Ireland, France, Italy, England, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. Her performances have been broadcast internationally on BR, WDR, RTÉ and RAI. Clara has also been awarded a Gold Recital Medal by the Royal Irish Academy of Music.

After her orchestra début at the age of nine, Clara has been performing piano concertos regularly, most recently those of Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Clara Schumann and Grieg and Beethovenʼs triple concerto.
