Classical pianist Michelle Schumann is known for her dexterity, unflinching skill, and moving, emotional performances.
The Artistic Director of the Austin Chamber Music Center since 2006, where she has steadily been “expanding the definition of chamber music,” Michelle Schumann has been drawing attention with the versatility of her own performance and repertoire, as well as her eclectic programming and creative collaborations. A proponent of audience interaction, the Austin native has performed all over the world, including both classic and contemporary elements in her pieces, garnering praise for her subtle hand and tonal variation. Schumann has also received numerous accolades, including awards for “Best Instrumentalist,” “Best Chamber Music Performance” and “Best Body of Work/Season” by the Austin Critics’ Table.
