“Last Sunday, Chicago-based soprano, the statuesque and oh-so-musically talented Claire Salomon, was the feature performer for one of Kenny Benjamin's concerts in a series. Through the sheer strength and artistry of her oh-so-very-rich voice [one can see that Ms. Salomon] is definitely a star in the offing. [She] is richly blessed with the greatest musical instrument known to man - a faultless voice, multi-layered and textured through training, commitment and dedication, that manages to transport those who come under its magical spell, through all the emotions............
[With her] voice as the supreme instrument, [the songs] echoed through the foothills of swanky upper St. Andrew; calming all that came under its resonance and instilling a reverence for the art form and sheer talent of the performer. This was a fabulous musical experience that will long be remembered for its artistic brilliance and the wealthy voice of Ms. Salomon.”
“Flying in from the “Windy City,” Clara Salomon.-- a soprano with a voice as pure as a nightingale’s.--performed several works from noted composers. Gershwin never sounded so sweet as Salomon........displayed masterful vocal control, delivering each note with clear, crisp melody that moved her audience...........Words were inconsequential as the raw emotion--each soulful and haunting refrain or joyful note of the soprano's voice-conveyed the message in each piece. So moved were the audience that multiple encores were requested and Salomon acquiesced with an immensely spiritual and moving Ave Maria by Schubert and an aria from “Tosca.”

“She sounded like an Isolde, ushering in a good New Year for us all. Her singing resonated far beyond the confines of the enormous room and cut directly to the soul.”
--H. Spector, In review of the premier of 2 chorale, liturgical works, Chicago, 2008.
“She is a tremendously gifted comic actress!.........In one show she went from causing the audience erupt in laughter (which happens like clockwork each and every night) with her impression of a very tall Edith Bunker, to commanding two Macarena boys to dance in circles around her as she sang Evita as Madonna the material girl. Her impression of a twisted funeral director, among others, was also delightful. Much of the show’s success belongs to her.”
--Katherine Thomas, Glacier Park Review (Montana, 2000)
“Claire Salomon is someone to be watched on stage for her presence---she draws you in, and the director doesn’t have to do anything at all to stage her, she can just stand there. The expressive and interpretive quality you hear and witness is a once in a generation talent.”
