Chloé Clerc, a native of France, has performed in her home country, as well as in Switzerland and India. She brings her musical stylings to the United States this year, and Pellissippi State Community College is included in the tour.
On www.chloe-clerc.com, the singer’s music is described this way: “With an intimist pop style, an overflowing energy that invites you to look at the good side of things rather than the bad, Chloé Clerc [belongs] to the art of true French song.”
After releasing her first album in 2005, Clerc was chosen as a 2006 finalist in a competition for young musical talents at the Paris Olympia. She then participated in a summer tour for radio station France Bleu Nord.
The young singer also collaborated with songwriter Christian Vie on a show they called “Les Petits Miroirs.” Other musicians with whom she has worked include Lili Beaumont, Thierry Geoffroy, Jef Kino and BP Zoom. Clerc is founder of Chloé-Music, a production company.
The concert, which is free and open to the public, is on Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. in the Clayton Performing Arts Center on the Pellissippi Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road.
The event is sponsored by the Tennessee Consortium for International Studies. TnCIS, whose headquarters are at Pellissippi State, was founded in 2006 to broaden international experience and knowledge at colleges and universities throughout Tennessee.
