claraShe married one giant of classical music, inspired and counseled another, and befriended many others. Yet Clara Schumann's story is not well known today, something one local performer is out to change.

katieasclaraschumannKatie Ketchum as Clara Schumann at the pianoIn creating her one-woman show about Clara Schumann, Katie Ketchum explains that she drew on many of her own skills and talents to bring the historical character to life.

To date, Ketchum has written biographical theatrical pieces about three very different women—Clara Schumann, Mary Magdalene and Mary Cassatt. The common thread, she says, is her own response to their stories.

Katie Ketchum brings the life of Clara Schumann, 19th Century Pianist to the stage ofthe Occidental Center for the Arts on Saturday, June 16th at 4 pm. Tickets are $10 at the door.
