American Concert Pianist, Steinway Artist, Susan Merdinger

Preparing for final concerts and festivities of 2013!

What a busy season it is! Parties, concerts, fundraisers, open houses....particularly busy if one is the one playing the concerts!
While the season for gratitude and thanksgiving begins on Thanksgiving, it doesn't end there! We all hope and pray for another New Year- with good health, prosperity, and contentment.

For those of you in the Chicago area- come here me perform on Sunday December 15th at 2pm at the Northbrook Public Library in a chamber music program entitled "Homage to Beethoven"- featuring three works in the "Classical Style" by Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven.  Beethoven's Birthday is December 16th- so this is the perfect timing to honor my favorite composer!

Immediately following will be my Sheridan Music Studio Student Recital from 3:15pm until 4:45pm ( Library closing time).

On Saturday December 21st at 5pm at the Dixon Stein Studio in the Fine Arts Building in Chicago, the FAMS Festival ( of which I am a founding faculty member), will present a benefit concert and fundraiser event. There will be refreshments and a concert of chamber music to entice you. Lawrence Block,  Cellist and FOunder of the Highland Park Strings will Emcee the event!

On Sunday December 22nd, I will be performing with the Lake Forest Civic Orchestra in their Holiday Concert at the Gorton Auditorium at 4pm- with lots of fun holiday cheer!

The, at the end of December (28 and 29) I will be busy accompanying several students for the Walgreen's National Concerto Competition, and then hosting our Annual New Year's Day Musicale!

January will be a month of practice and recording sessions, and getting ready for the Spring. I'll be only to happy to stay warm indoors through the dreaded cold months here in Chicago!

All the best for a Happy Holiday Season and New Year!
Susan
