Susan FerréAdvisor
Susan Ferré currently lives in her mother’s ancestral home of Gorham, NH, where she directs a non-profit organization, Music in the Great North Woods (www.musicgnw.org), bringing classical music to the North Country on period instruments. The Big Moose Bach Fest, begun in 2009, draws participants and listeners both locally and around the country. Susan serves St. Barnabas Episcopal Church as Organist and Director of Music, and has maintained an active concert career, having performed widely in Europe, including three visits to Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, Scandinavia, Brazil, Canada, and throughout the United States. 

She has served the faculties of Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington, Southern Methodist University, Perkins School of Theology, University of North Texas and the University of Paris at Vincennes. For more than twenty years she directed the Texas Baroque Ensemble, sixteen singers and instrumentalists who pioneered performances of little known works, as well as major ones, using original instruments and early singing styles, and for fourteen years directed an Early Music Weekend at Round Top, Texas.

She holds degrees from Texas Christian University, the first to earn two simultaneous degrees with four majors (Philosophy, Music Lit, Music Theory and Church Music), and from the Eastman School of Music (MM in Music Lit and Organ Performance). A Fulbright Scholar, recipient of the Diplome d’Orgue et Improvisation from the Schola Cantorum in Paris, as well as the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from University of North Texas, Susan Ferré was honored with a Distinguished Alumna award from that university in 2001. She was made an Honorary Alumna of the Perkins School of Theology in 2015 for her many years’ involvement coaching early music in the Master of Sacred Music program. Recently she delivered the Keynote Address of the inaugural meeting of MusForum in New York City and a 2016 video is featured in their Global Recital Series.

Susan joined Mountain Top as an advisor in 2009.

NEW ORDERING SYSTEM!

The green “CONCERT SCHEDULE AND RESERVATIONS” button on this page will take you to a schedule of concerts. There is no need to sign in to view the schedule, but when you click “Add to Cart” to reserve seats, you will be asked to sign in with a user ID and password. If you have bought a concert ticket in the last several years, that info was emailed to you on or around April 26, 2018. If you have misplaced your info, click on “Forgot” and enter the primary email for your household (the one that receives concert directions and/or invoices from Mt Top). That address will then receive an email with your credentials (you may have to check your spam).  You can also call our office between 10 and 5  Monday through Thursday and we will give you your information. If you are a new user (never registered for a lesson, purchased a concert ticket, or recently donated to Mountain Top), you must create an account in order to purchase a concert ticket. You will receive email confirmation of your payment.
