His performances have been broadcast on WMUK in Michigan as well as MBC National Television in Korea. Of his playing, “New York Concert Review Magazine” wrote, “Clark brought out much beauty in Chopin’s soulfully embroidered melodies. He played with thoughtful expressiveness” and “achieved an excellent blend [with the orchestra].”
Clark is an assistant professor of music at Hope, where he teaches courses in applied piano, piano ensemble, keyboard skills, piano pedagogy and accompanying. He is also director of the Hope College Young Artists Piano Competition, coordinator of the Hope College Keyboard Concerts Series and collegiate chapter chair for the Michigan Music Teachers Association.
