Dr. Susan De Kam is originally from Caledonia, Michigan. She completed her undergraduate studies in 2002 with a major in piano, studying under Joan Conway, at Hope College in Holland, Michigan. It was in her freshman year there that she began studying organ as a secondary instrument with Huw Lewis, but it soon became her principal interest. In 2004, Susan earned her Master of Music degree from The University of Michigan. She studied organ with late, legendary Robert Glasgow, piano with Louis Nagel, and harpsichord with Edward Parmentier. As an organist and pianist, Susan has become a well-rounded musician not only through her solo concertizing on both instruments, but also as an accompanist, chamber musician, and teacher. In addition to being the recipient of numerous prizes and awards for her performances on piano and organ, she has been a prizewinner in the Music Teachers National Association Collegiate Organ Competition (2002), the Miami International Organ Competition (2006), the Bank District Organ Competition (2009) held in London, and the National Young Artists Competition in Organ Performance (NYACOP) (2010). She also was a semi-finalist in the Bach/Liszt International Organ Competition, held in Weimar, Germany (2008). Susan recently completed her Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Organ Performance at the University of Michigan where she studied with James Kibbie. She serves as Artist-in-Residence at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Dallas and maintains a private organ, piano, and harpsichord studio.
