About our soloist

Suzanne Taber discovered her passion for the clarinet after transitioning from the tenor saxophone as an 8th grader living in Mantua, OH. Her relentless quest for mastery of the instrument as well as a tireless desire to share her knowledge of the clarinet with others led her to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education from the University of Mount Union, where she studied with James Perone, followed by a Master of Music at the University of Akron, where she continued her studies with Håkan Rosengren.

Ms. Taber began her career as a music educator for the Marlington School District in Alliance, OH and then transitioned her focus to non-profit arts administration with jobs as varied as managing the First Night® Rockford performing arts festival in Rockford, IL and serving as the Managing Director of The Saint Paul Conservatory of Music in St. Paul, MN. Ms. Taber has sought playing opportunities in each location she has lived, including clarinet choirs, community bands and orchestras such as the Rockford Wind Ensemble and the Puget Sound Symphony Orchestra, in addition to musical theater and chamber groups. She currently plays with the Solon Philharmonic Orchestra and the Lake Effect Concert Band.

Welcome to the Snowbelt Musical Arts Association, a nonprofit organization created to bring more music to the Snowbelt region of Northeast Ohio. We provide opportunities for people of all ages to participate in musical activities, both as performers and audiences.
