Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Clara Kathleen Rogers (Cheltenham, January 14, 1844 - Boston, March 8, 1931), was an American composer, singer, writer and music educator. Clara Kathleen Barnett Rogers was born into a musical family. Her grandfather, Robert Lindley, was a cellist; her father, John Barnett, was an opera composer and was the first music teacher his children had; her mother, Eliza, was a singer. At the age of twelve, her family moved to Germany in order further the musical education of the children. Clara was denied acceptance to the Leipzig Conservatory, but that decision was changed in 1857 in view of her talent, making her the youngest student ever admitted. Two of her siblings also attended the conservatory. During this time, John Barnett returned to England while Eliza Barnett stayed with her children, a trend that continued through-out the early part of Rogers's career.show more
