Susanne Katchko

Rarely in my experience have I witnessed all the gifts that Susanne possesses in one package – a vocal instrument of beauty and impressive size, a brilliant mind, innate musicality, fine musicianship, an intuitive ease with language, and physical beauty.

Incredibly gifted … brilliant.  There’s major talent there – major musicianship…

                        Sharon Daniels, Soprano


                        The Opera Institute at Boston University  


 A phenomenal performer – versatility that takes you from laughter to tears!

                        Rex Trailer, Producer/Host, New England Cable News


 Ebullient … dazzling!

                        Don Shewey, Boston Phoenix


 Susanne was excellent!  She established a rapport with the audience immediately, and her warmth, charm and talent were evident from the moment she began.

                        Rena Shoenfeld, Director

                        JCC of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania


 … truly a delightful evening.  Susanne is a talented, pleasant, refreshing entertainer …

In addition, her explanations which preceded the Yiddish, Hebrew and Ladino songs were entertaining and informative.

                        Ruth Burke, Chairman

                        JCC of Louisville, Kentucky


 Terrific … moving, powerful, compelling.  The reaction from the audience was wonderful.

 Susanne Katchko, in a beautiful performance, transcends her musical excellence as her vitality brings tradition to life.

 Susanne Katchko combines a rich, classically-trained voice with the natural warmth and fervor of true folk song.

 Her chanting was not only beautiful, but was also very inspiring.
