German Canadian Male Chorus of Calgary

Susan, a native Calgarian, holds an associate degree in piano performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto, and an associate degree in piano pedagogy from Trinity College, London, England.

Susan has worked extensively as an accompanist, organist, teacher of piano, and choral conductor for over twenty-five years. Some positions she has held include choir director/organist at St. Giles Presbyterian Church; conductor/accompanist of the Petro-Canada Chorale; conductor of the German Canadian Male Chorus of Calgary, accompanist at the Conservatory of Music, Mount Royal College, and accompanist for the Calgary Children's Choir.

While we acknowledge the contributions of all our directors over the years, we would like to make special mention of Susan's long association with the choir, either as accompanist or director, for a majority of its existence, with some breaks including a four year hiatus in Ontario.

Susan is delighted to have the opportunity of conducting the German Canadian Male Chorus.
