Other lives: The street cellist of Vancouvermain
Meet Clara Shandler. You won’t regret it.
My name is Clara, I’m a punk-rock-yogi cellist, and I take it outside. I put beats in my Bach, mix a little French impressionism with my metal, and throw a bit of a Buddhist philosophy in some jazz. I’ve been Vancouver’s Sidewalk Cellist since I was 14 and this year I’m doing free outdoor cello concerts in Canada, Cambodia, Burma, Nepal, and Europe.
