Chopin/Schumann on the Bluff, Concert I: Carnaval

August 28 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Mary Pappert School of Music’s popular chamber music series returns for a 21st season with the beginning of a two-year-long exploration and celebration of the solo piano and chamber music of Romantic composers Frédéric Chopin and Robert Schumann. Artistic Director David Allen Wehr has invited members of the Duquesne University faculty and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, along with internationally-renowned guest artists for a feast of beautiful melodies and compelling story-telling.
