Displays and Dialogue with Festival Artists
Michelle Schumann & Festival Artists perform Mozart.
Hailed for her “sensitive, flexible, and tempestuous dexterity,” (Fanfare Magazine) pianist Michelle Schumann has built a reputation for evocative and moving performances. Since 2006, Michelle has served as artistic director of the Austin Chamber Music Center, where she “is fearlessly expanding our definition of chamber music.” (Austin-American Statesman) Her brand of performance includes an enthusiastic interplay with the audience and her trademark includes bringing diverse music together under a blanket of narrative events.
Schumann is artist-in-residence and professor of piano at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. She received a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from The University of Texas at Austin and additionally holds a Performance Diploma from the Vienna Conservatory.
