I still remember my first experience with The Artist Project in 2012 where I saw the headlining entertainer, Clara Venice, with her hauntingly enchanting theremin skills and visual experience. I was so blown away by her talent and then she graciously performed at the launch party of Best of Toronto in 2012.

Here’s Clara Venice with The Artist Project’s show director, Claire Taylor.
