June 2000, Claron McFadden took part in a concert with the Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkest, Cappella Amsterdam, Morgan Ågren and Mats Öberg performing Frank Zappa's "200 Motels, The Suites" in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
The concerts were part of the Holland Festival.

In 2010, Claron was featured in a Josse De Pauw / Corrie van Binsbergen project: "Over De Bergen".

Saturday, March 26, 2011, during Dutch TV's "Vrije Geluiden" broadcast, Claron performed John Cage's 'Aria'.

Just  to mention that opera singer and all-round vocalist Claron McFadden has a couple of links with the United Mutations Universe.

Next Saturday, Claron is participating in another remarkable event :

At De Singel in Antwerp, BE :

In 'Nightshade: Aubergine', Claron McFadden seeks common cultural roots on the basis of the culinary qualities of the aubergine. This nightshade-like vegetable has migrated huge distances, but has been able to put down roots everywhere. Lisa Tahon and McFadden followed the route in the reverse direction: from the West, via the Mediterranean countries, to the Far East. Among each of the local peoples they discovered a dish and a song. In this way, McFadden adds a new chapter to the tradition of migration together with musicians from many 'nightshade cultures': Roma, Belgian, Iraqi, Greek and Afro-Anatolian. In 'Nightshade: Aubergine' you can taste the rich cooking of the aubergine in combination with live music and a travel documentary about what links people together and how cross-fertilisation enriches our identity.

The concert will end with drinks and aubergine snacks. Tasty !!
