Susan Millard Schwarz was born in Steubenville, Ohio, into a family who relied on the Weirton Steel Industry, but who also valued Christian, college education for younger generations. Coming from a long line of United Methodist pastors and song leaders, Susan developed a love for Christian music and worship. In high school, she became steeped in music and theatre. She continued to pursue these fields at Asbury University, a Christian institution, and then earned her masters of music degree in voice performance from The Ohio State University. She since has led a professional career in opera, oratorio, musical theater and concert work. After holding soloist/section leader positions for various churches, she accepted the invitation to sing for a Christian Science church. To her delight, she discovered a new trove of wonderful vocal music, which she wanted to introduce to a larger audience. Her recent album, “Gather Us In,” which includes songs from Christian Science origins, is her first solo recording project.
Susan is CEO of Anahata Music Project LLC, through which she launched the online Musicians Directory™. A devoted follower of Christ, she enjoys a loving, interfaith household with her husband, extended family, and their numerous animals.
