Event Description

"US based classical guitarist, composer, and storyteller Susan McDonald has shared her music all over the globe, from the Amazon to Iraq, from community concerts to Carnegie Hall performances. A protegée of the legendary Pepe Romero, Susan’s many recordings and live performances have been heard on radio and television broadcasts worldwide. An exciting composer, she is the creator of a unique art called ""Animal Ballets,"" a combination of her original music and video footage with animals as ""dancers"" to her ""orchestra."" With the non-profit organization, Remember the River, she works to support artists in conflict zones through teaching, mentorship and donations of musical instruments and art supplies. She works domestically with Young Audiences of Houston and serves as Artistic Director for Fine Arts Foundation. She is Director of Guitar for YES Academies in Iraq and Lebanon and has recently finished serving her fourth term on the Touring Roster of Texas Commission on the Arts and the Mid-America Arts Alliance. Susan has also released ten CDs on the Mayfly label. Dedicated to bringing music to people in regions of conflict or isolation, Susan is the mentor of the Orontes Guitar Quartet currently residing in Victoria, BC. The quartet members, originally from Syria, were able to come to Canada safely two years ago to continue their training and tour across the country.

On July 29th, Susan McDonald will share stories from her dangerous and inspiring music journey in the Middle East. The conversation will take us to present day challenges and look at what role music plays for our well-being and humanity. The talk will be followed by a live discussion with the audience and a Q&A session. Technical requirements: ZOOM (browser or app version), speakers, microphone. Webcam optional.
