Japanese alumna to perform benefit concert next month

Claire_ChinoOn December 6, Smith alumna Claire Chino ’88, will perform a charity concert in Tokyo to benefit BEYOND Tomorrow.

Claire was born in the Netherlands and spent her early years in London, Los Angeles, and Tokyo. She studied government and music at Smith before going on to receive a Doctor of Jurisprudence from Cornell University. She says, “my music career really blossomed at Smith, especially under [the late] William Parker.”

A semi-professional singer, Claire is also an executive officer at Itochu, where–in 2013–she became the first female executive officer of any major trading company in Japan, as well as the youngest. She has been lauded by a number of a number of organizations, having been recognized as a “Young Global Leader” by the World Economic Forum, among a number of other distinctions.

The December 6 concert will also feature a pianist and a flutist.
