I have been wondering how to share the story of Alice Sommer’s life.
There are so many things to learn from her 110 years … and so few words to express them.
Alice is the focus of the short documentary The Lady in Number 6: Music Saved My Life.
The documentary has been nominated for an Oscar. The ceremony will take place without her. She passed away in London on Sunday.
You can learn more about here in this 5 minute video (made in 2010) when at 106 she was still practising the piano for two and a half hours a day in her flat in central London.
