Nicholas Perry Clark (b. 1993 in Portland, OR) is a conductor, composer, and bassoonist from Rainier, OR. Nicholas aspires to make a living as a conductor/composer and wishes to extend these roles to become an artistic visionary and a community leader. For this reason, he is a lover of film, theatre, and art in addition to music, and enjoys these mediums when he is not working on his music or studying the music of others. He conducts the Engineering Chamber Orchestra's Full Orchestra and Early/Contemporary Ensemble and frequently conducts new music by his composition colleagues at UT.
