Claire Hodgkins

Claire Hodgkins, an internationally respected violinist, teacher, and chamber musician, is a native of Oregon. She began her career in the Portland area where she played as concertmaster in the Little Chamber Orchestra in the 1950s. In their first tour to Europe in 1955 where they played in six countries, this group created a sensation and received rave reviews. The 16 members, all young women from 15 to 18 years of age, gave impeccable performances, playing their concerts from memory.
In those years, Hodgkins was chosen from 500 applicants for the Brussels International Competition to be one of seven women to compete, along with 30 male contestants. The La Libre Beligique praised her playing on that occasion for its "flawless accuracy, magnificent bowing, and superior tone quality."
Although in her early years she toured as a recitalist and as a soloist with orchestras in the Northwest, she would become known for her playing as a soloist and chamber musician in her tours in the U.S. and Europe.
