ABOUT THE ARTIST
Susan Eichhorn Young embodies all things voice: Chanteuse/Singer, Actor, Writer, Speaker, Voice Teacher, and Speaking Coach.
Canadian-born and NYC-based, her vocal versatility and its ability to live comfortably in many genres has carried her from the church to concert halls, opera and musical theatre stages, recording studios, and back to the intimacy of cabaret.
Raised in a theatrical and musical family, early piano virtuosity started with lessons at age 8. She went on to earn three ARCT diplomas (Piano Performance, Voice Performance, and Voice Pedagogy) from University of Toronto's Royal Conservatory of Music. She also holds a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance from the University of Saskatchewan, and a Master of Music in Voice Performance and Literature from Western University, London.
Her versatility on stage has allowed her the privilege of creating operatic roles that include the Countess in Mozart’s La Nozze di Figaro, Fiordiligi in Cosi fan tutte, Musetta in Puccini’s La Boheme, the title role of Puccini’s Suor Angelica, among others; as well, she originated a role in the NYC-premiere of Alan Jaffe’s The Mary Shelley Opera.
Her music theatre, concert, and cabaret performances are numerous, and include works by Kurt Weill, Stephen Sondheim, Rodgers and Hart, Kander and Ebb, Gershwin, Cole Porter, and many more. She gave the world premiere of Modern Love Songs by American composer, Chester Biscardi, with Canadian pianist, Mark Payne. Steeped in the European cabaret tradition, her performances include German and French repertoire, as well as American Song. She has recorded and performed Schönberg's Brettl-Lieder with pianist/music director, Alan Johnson. Also, in this tradition, her debut album, Taking My Turn, is a collection of cabaret & theatre songs by Weill, Sondheim, Poulenc & William Bolcom. Recorded with music director and pianist Alan Johnson and produced by Grammy Award-winning tenor Thomas Young, Taking My Turn is available on iTunesand Spotify.
Susan's work as a voiceover artist can be heard on many promos and commercials, as well as the voice actor for 30+ audiobooks on Audible.
In addition to her performance career, Susan has worked as an Artistic Director, Stage Director and Vocal Consultant for various productions, recording studios, and talent agencies. Her passion for teaching (a legacy from her father) has allowed her a parallel path. Her private teaching, adjudicating, group workshops, and seminars have been developed throughout North America, Brazil, Europe and China. She has held long-term academic positions at Western University, Sarah Lawrence College, Moravian College, and CAP21, Tisch School of the Arts, NYU.
After a near fatal car accident in 2011, Susan took a brief hiatus from performing and teaching. However, in November of 2016, she premiered her most recent one-woman show, Why?, at The Laurie Beechman Theater to sold-out audiences and rave reviews. Online, her blog reaches a worldwide audience of over 300,000 viewers and growing!
