(Wausau, WI) – South Beach Chamber Ensemble (SBCE) continues its fifth annual free chamber music festival with the celebration of Robert Schumann’ 200th birthday. The German born Schumann (June 8, 1810 – July 29, 1856) was one of the most famous Romantic composers of the 19th century. He had hoped to pursue a career as a virtuoso pianist, having been assured by his teacher Friedrich Wieck that he could become the finest pianist in Europe after only a few years of study with him.
