‘Brava’ to you!...I think [the article] is excellent. It deals in fascinating ways with the political and cultural  complexities of the piece. I found it thought-provoking and revealing.
— Anthony Freud, General Director, Lyric Opera, Chicago
Susan Halpern is a pleasure to work with on program notes. She often turns around assignments even faster than required, which makes any project that much easier!”
— Susan Scarlata, Director of Marketing at the Grand Teton Music Festival
I have had the pleasure of including Susan Halpern’s notes in my programs for around ten years. Her notes are distinguished by a fluid writing style and tasteful choices in presenting just the right kind and amount of information. Without over-intellectualizing, she communicates the most pertinent facts in an entertaining and engaging way reaching out to all audience members.
— Eliot Bailen, Artistic Director, Sherman Chamber Ensemble and New York Chamber Ensemble
