• Bio

    Suzannah Park comes from a family of three generations of traditional singers, storytellers and dancers and is happily making music touring about the country from concert halls to music parties back at home.

  • Currently living in her native town of Asheville, NC she finds time for many sewing projects, dance parties and delicious meals. Since 2008 she has led the Wild Asheville Community Chorus which is going strong with 150+ singers. While in town Suzannah also gleefully dons her orange calico dress and matching bloomers and dances with the Green Grass Cloggers.

    While on the road Suzannah travels mostly up and down both American coasts but finds time to jump over seas as well. Weather singing solo or in her various ensembles you can find her teaching singing at camps, performing at festivals and kicking up her heels when the music starts.

  • Programs

  • Concerts & Workshops

    Suzannah is known in America and Europe as a teacher and performer of traditional music. The musical styles from which she draws her material are deliciously varied and include music from America, the British Isles, Bulgaria, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Caucus Republic of Georgia, Corsica and South Africa.

  • Harmony Workshops

    Suzannah is known as an energetic, and inspiring leader. Her workshops are for singers of all abilities, from novice to music director. Wheather she’s teaching a rollicking gospel number or a soothing Georgian lullaby, she skillfully has groups singing in harmony before they realize they’re doing it. She teaches songs both sacred and secular from a wide range of community singing traditions.

    “Singing with Suzannah can’t be beat. If she can’t return, are there any people out there who can match her abilitiy?”
~Bernie Rubenstein, NM

  • “Sunday’s workshop was Grand!—Instructive, dramatic, meaningful, fun, full-voice singing. Having taught “parts” to singers for many years, I recognize the combined skills and attitudes that are You! Your light-hearted but serious approach is manna from heaven." ~Gail Ashburn, NC

    Suzannah and her singing partner, Nathan Morrison, began the Wild Asheville Community Chorus (WACC) in 2008. The chorus has a Fall and Spring season with 80-120 singers currently in the group. The chorus meets once a week for 10 – 12 weeks and concludes each season with a set of concerts. The chorus is always welcoming new members at the start of each season.

    “I am loving singing with you both! It’s just what I’ve been looking for – and I only wish it could last all year.” ~Susan King Danos

    “I want you to know how much I have enjoyed the unique experience of being a part of this group! The last time I sang in any kind of organized choir was in Jr. High (this was in the late 60’s – so quite a while ago…), but in spite of that, AND the fact that I don’t read music, I had recently begun seeking out some sort of singing venue. What a pleasant surprise to find WACC! You are a gifted & enthusiastic teacher, and I absolutely love your teaching style. The choir members have been super helpful & friendly to a newcomer such as myself, which has made the overall experience a very positive one for me.” Betsy Toner

    This eight voice ensemble hits the road once a year for a rollicking annual tour. Their concerts features traditional songs from the United States, Balkans, Corsica and the Republic of Georgia, as well as original compositions from the group’s members. The American repertoire includes shape-note songs (a traditional New England song style), powerful gospel numbers, and haunting folk tunes from the Appalachians. The Georgian, Corsican and Bulgarian songs are a mixture of sacred and secular pieces demonstrating an incredible range of unique singing traditions. The eclectic program will delight world-music fans and lovers of choral performance.

  • “You Starry Mt. Singers are awesome! I can’t wait to have the opportunity to hear you live! It’s so exciting for me to hear a new generation of singers interested in traditional music and blending the new with the old. Keep up the grand work! Your parents (and by that I mean all the parents in my generation!) are very proud of you!” ~ Sally Rogers
