Join us for a talk and performance with author and classically trained pianist Sharon Ruchman. She will be discussing her book, The Gift of Rudy, which is a memoir about Sharon's journey of discovery through the life and music of her father's uncle, a young violinist who died in a tragic plane crash in Lake Michigan during the 1933 Chicago World's Fair. For more than 25 years, she traced the life of Rudy Fuchs, a musical prodigy whose life would have a major bearing on her own career as a musician.

American composer, pianist and violist, Sharon Ruchman began her musical journey when she took up piano at the age of eight, later receiving a Bachelor of Music from New England Conservatory of Music and a Master of Music from Yale School of Music. Her myriad accomplishments include the production of six CDs, including original classical music for solo instrumentation and chamber ensembles.
