Welcome back from summer and I hope it was filled with fun, rest and music-making for you. I was busy doing non-musical but necessary chores for most of the summer months, but did manage to get away for some R & R in San Diego where I then performed at the National Flute Association Convention with Zinkali Trio.

I was happy to learn of a new three-movement work for horn and piano entitled "Sonatina" by Jeffrey Kaufman this past year and some exciting things he has written for chorus. Pianist and new friend Joshua Pierce http://www.piercepiano.com/  and I went into the recording studio with it and will be presenting the live premiere soon. 2016 is looking to be eventful, including planning my own solo CD, and also planning my second "Composer Extravaganza" concert.

I hope for a fruitful season for all of us and I hope to see you at a performance. With much love, Susan.

I'm happy to announce that I've been appointed the new music director of the Ridgewood United Methodist Church and also The Ridgewood Singers! As a result, I've been extra busy getting music planned and prepared, so if you're in the northern New Jersey area, keep an eye out for upcoming concerts. More announcements soon!
