SUZANNE GROSVENOR is a composer, pianist and improvisationist. Her music is born out of classical, jazz and world music influences.
Suzanne creates tone poems on the piano as interpretations of people and places and situations. Her collaborative works with filmmakers, theatre and media artists have showcased around the world and aired on NPR radio, the Disney Channel and PBS television.
Suzanne's rock group of the 1970s played warmup in concert to David Byrne and the Talking Heads, she played jazz fusion keyboards with the Don Latarski group in the 1980s, worked as a piano sideman in Nashville and was guest soloist in concert with orchestras from age 10.
She began creating custom music portraits in the 1980s. A person will sit with her as she interprets the music she senses for them, extemporaneously. Her spontaneous portraits allow for an “interactive dynamic” often known to stimulate profound effects in the listener.
Through her concerts, recordings, workshops and private interpretations, listeners journey to a deepened, palpable sense of the moment. Her performances have been described “incredibly exhilarating” and ”unspeakably profound.”
Suzanne began her music lessons at age seven and soon took up violin and cello. She released her first solo album, Lantern in the Window in 1984. Her music has been featured on the Lights Out II CD, along with performances of David Friesen, William Ackerman, David Lanz, Jeff Lorber, George Winston, Eric Tingstad and others.
