Susan, former Board President of the Denver Pops, has been playing the violin for 15 years. Her path to the instrument didn’t start as a young musician herself, but rather she was inspired by young performers and encouraged to discover her own talent. 

When Susan was getting ready to retire from teaching 5th grade at Jeffco Public Schools she wanted to pick up an activity that would allow for her creativity to grow through this new time in her life.  Susan decided to rent a violin and accompany her students to their instrumental music class. What started as a fun experiment with her students ended in a passion for the music and a dedication to perfecting her newly discovered talent. 

Susan – thank you for being a part of the Denver Pops journey and our mission to serve the community through the performance of familiar music for the last 40 years.
