A one-woman concert/drama by Katie Ketchum. Through letters, storytelling, costume and piano pieces, Katie Ketchum, San Francisco pianist and actor, brings one of the most distinguished pianists of the Romantic era alive. Clara Schumann, a composer herself, was married to the famous composer Robert
Schumann during the 1800’s and brought his compositions to the European forefront through her concertizing while raising their eight children. She also brought the work of Johannes Brahms to the public and continued her friendship with him after Robert’s tragic death. Katie Ketchum will also play and sing some of Clara’s original works that have been rarely performed in concert.
