Susan Clearman: HOME

Susan Clearman takes great pleasure in creating and performing music both old and new, vintage and original, familiar and fresh, classic and improvised, domestic and international, in the box and out of the box! As performer or as composer, she thrives on sharing the singular experience of LIVE music with her audiences.

Between and beyond Atlanta, Georgia and Highlands, North Carolina, Ms. Clearman tailors her solo or band performances to the occasion. She’s a great admirer of cellist Yo-Yo Ma, and like him, brings curiosity, warmth, and classical sensibilities to explore and connect diverse cultures and musics. Klezmer, Celtic, Ragtime, and Tango are just the beginning! For each musical genre, she strives for authenticity and integrity of style. Whether playing for weddings or funerals, recitals or musical theater, folk fests, convention engagements, or other special events, she draws from her varied repertoire and experience to present the perfect musical complement on piano, accordion or organ.

Susan’s compositions reflect echoes of Gershwin and Prokofieff, Sibelius and international trad music. Responses to her works include: “delightful, modern and creative,” “expressive,” “fun to play,” and “perfect, Maestra!” She has been commissioned to write for events such as the dedication of a new pipe organ, an ordination, and a community choir Christmas concert. Her evocative works transport listeners’ imaginations to exotic locales, or nostalgia, enchantment, whimsy, or awe.

Susan Clearman: Spirited, Engaging, Professional, Eclectic, Classically-trained with a Groove!
