Directed by: Barry Kleinbort

We are living in a period of time where what is ordinary has shifted and we are all being called upon to adjust to a new normal. As we recover from each calamity that bears down on us, we feel a great need for healing. Music is that healer. Award-winning singer, Susan Winter was commissioned by the Kupferberg Holocaust Center in Queens, NY to create a program which demonstrates how music has been used to raise awareness as political, social and cultural commentary; as well as to enlighten and uplift. Susan is delighted to reprise it for Urban Stages Winter Rhythms.

Susan Winter is a native New Yorker vocalist and entertainer, Susan Winter, has been compared to the best in the business, honing her craft performing with jazz trios, big bands and Top-40 groups. Susan has made a name for herself in the NYC cabaret world. She has been nominated for 8 MAC awards beginning with her ‘debut’ performance of Million Dollar Matinee. This was quickly followed by winning a Bistro Award as “Outstanding Vocalist” and then a MAC Award for Best Recording and a Broadway World Award for Direction. In making the Metropolitan Room her home, Susan co-produced and hosted an Open Mic with the best pianists NYC had to offer, giving novices and pros a chance to hone their art in one of the city’s best rooms.
