Susan Billmeyer

Co-artistic Director

Susan Billmeyer joined as an artistic partner in 2014 after years of captivating audiences from the bench and bringing a unique perspective as an interpreter and communicator of chamber music, as articulate behind a microphone as she is behind a keyboard. Billmeyer has performed regularly with the Minnesota Orchestra since 2005, and she is heard frequently with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, internationally, as well as on the BIS recording label. Susan Billmeyer holds degrees from Oberlin Conservatory, Indiana University, and the University of Minnesota.

Susan demonstrates the meaning of “collaborative piano” as her part in the third movement from Schubert’s Trout Quintet dances alongside the string quartet.
