About the Performer
Janezic has been playing carillon for 4 years, studying at the University of Rochester under Doris Aman. She has also been lucky enough to receive instruction from carillonneurs Lisa Lonie and Tim Sleep and has recently passed the Carillonneur examination for the Guild of Carillonneurs in North America (GCNA).
Claire is an undergraduate Music and History double-major at the University of Rochester and is minoring in Audio Music Engineering. In addition to being a member of the Carillon Society, she plays in the Gamelan Sanjiwani ensemble. Her historical interests are centered in the 20th century United States and Mexico, especially in regards to Pennsylvanian anthracite coal mining culture, and immigration. Extracurricular, Claire served as Music Director of campus popular music group No Jackets Required (NJR) and Music Director of community theater group Dream Visualize Create (DVC) in 2018. Claire will graduate next year, after completing a Take 5 (fifth-year program) studying art created by incarcerated people. In her free time, Claire enjoys indoor rock climbing and taking care of a growing collection of plants.
