    As the daughter of professional musicians, Giovanna Moraga Clayton was destined to have a life in music. “She’s going to be a cellist!”, an exclamation made by her father within hours of her birth set the path for her future. Born in Toluca Mexico and raised in Southern California, Giovanna earned a number of accolades as a young cellist. Making her orchestral solo debut at the age of 14, Giovanna has continued to solo with orchestras in the US as well as Central America as well as holding tenured positions with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. Working in the Los Angeles studio scene for the last 14 years, Giovanna has played on countless movie soundtracks, records and television shows.
