WORKS

Hailed by the San Francisco Classical Voice as “An arranger and orchestrator of great imagination and a "musical polymath,” Assad has been arranging and orchestrating for over fifteen years.  Clarice was principal arranger for the New Century Chamber Orchestra from 2007-2017, and among her most compelling arrangements for the group are George Gershwin’s "An American in Paris Suite,” Strauss’ “Dance of the Seven Veils" from his opera Salome and Mussorgsky’s  epic “Pictures at an Exhibition.”
