In tribute to composer Robert Schumann (1810-1858) students in the Dorrill piano studio played pieces composed by Schumann and recited his words of wisdom. The event included 17 pieces from his popular Album for the Young and 10 pieces from Scenes from Childhood. As a special treat, Dr. Christopher Swanson (Longwood Music Department) sang two Schumann songs, accompanied by Martha Dorrill.
