Susan actively home educated her four girls for twenty years and had the joy of having her daughters sing in a girls’ homeschool choir that she has directed since 2007. She continues to direct the homeschool girls’ choir, which provides her with opportunities for one of her greatest passions- composing and arranging choral music. Susan’s particular love for choral music began in high school where she was mentored by her high school choral teacher. Since high school, Susan has sung in and directed a variety of choirs over the years from children’s choirs to church choirs to community choirs. From 1991-1995 (while living in Massachusetts) Susan served as the assistant conductor for the Lawrence Choral Arts Society. She also was their composer-inresidence, and debuted two of her choral compositions with orchestra.
I believe that music is one of the most powerful gifts God has given us and I love being able to share this precious gift with others. To me, choral music is a perfect example of how we can come together as one to glorify God and as a result, all be blessed- whether it be as the listener or the singer.
