About the event

Susan Robertson was brought up in the ‘fisher-end’ of Newbiggin-by-the-Sea. She taught music for ten years at Meadowdale Middle School, Bedlington before moving to Teesside 23 years ago.

She has been the Manager of the Tees Valley Music Service, the Lead Partner in the Music Education Hub for Tees Valley for the past 12 years responsible for a team of 60 staff. The Hub works mainly within the local authorities of Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees, and also provides services across the north east.

Susan has taught for 33 years and has delivered hundreds of workshops for young people and their families and many CPD sessions for schools and other educational settings including nurseries and child minders.

Susan is also well-known as a soprano soloist, vocal workshop leader, song-writer and conductor of choirs. She was Musical Director of Ashington Operatic Society for a number of years in the 1990’s and she leads two weekly choirs in Teesside. She has also been a soloist and choir member with Joan Trainor’s Ravenswood Singers for the past 25 years. She also sings regularly with local choirs and musical groups including The Cobweb Orchestra, Ashington Male Voice Choir, Backworth Male Voice Choir, Teesside Apollo Male Voice Choir and Newbiggin’s Jayess Band.

A highlight for Susan was being asked to sing Rule Britannia and God Save the Queen in the finale of the 2017 New Year’s Day Celebrations in London, an event televised round the world.

“It is wonderful to have been invited to sing for you this afternoon and come back ‘home. My programme will include songs from the stage and screen, some operetta and some operatic pieces too, as well as one or two ‘showcase’ coloratura pieces such as the Queen of the Night’s Aria from the Magic Flute. I’ll also tell a couple of tales about things that have happened to me along the way.”
