Performance Bio

Beth Sussman received her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees at the age of twenty-one from The Juilliard School where she was on full scholarship. She has performed throughout North America and Europe including appearances at Lincoln Center, The Ravinia Festival (Summer home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra), Royce Hall (UCLA), The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and The Huntington Gardens and Museum. She has also performed on live radio broadcasts on radio stations WQXR (New York), WFMT (Chicago) and KUSC (Los Angeles).

Beth is a favorite performer at museums, retirement communities, libraries, schools and Cultural Centers. Her performances are warm and intimate and include brief and witty stories about the music and composers featured in the program.

Beth has released two CDs: one is an all-Gershwin CD as well as “Just Desserts” which features short pieces by Chopin, Debussy, Brahms and other composers.

A television pilot loosely based on her life was executive produced by Kelsey Grammer for Paramount Pictures Television for NBC.
