ATLANTA -- Caroline Haffner, an internationally acclaimed concert pianist, will give a recital at the Woodruff Arts Center next month.
Haffner, born Imperial Princess Caroline Murat in Paris, will perform Chopin and Liszt pieces on Sunday, Oct. 12 at 3 p.m.
"I am delighted to be returning to the United States to play concerts again," Princess Caroline said in a release. "It has been too long, and I am very pleased that the concerts are being supported by my friends in Georgia."
A direct descendent of French Revolution cavalry chief Marechal Joachim Murat, Princess Caroline began playing the piano as a very young child. She is one of the last students of legendary French pianist Alfred Cortot and received a Fulbright Scholarship to study music in the U.S.
Her stage name comes from another ancestor -- Sigmund Haffner, mayor of Salzburg, Austria, and friend of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
