When Robert Schumann married talented musician Clara Josephine Wieck, what did he give her as a wedding gift? You guessed it: a cookbook.


Female composers of Western classical music have long been neglected and denied the same opportunities and recognition their male counterparts received. In this concert, voice students from the NAFA School of Music collaborate with Year 3 Keyboard students to perform compositions by outstanding female composers such as Amy Beach, Fanny Cäcilie Mendelssohn, Clara Schumann, Cécile Louise Stéphanie Chaminade, and Lili Boulanger.
