The Northern Illinois University Community School of the Arts will present a family concert by Susan Reed, an acclaimed musician known for great songs and story-telling.

The concert will be held at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 2 in the Recital Hall in the Music Building on the campus of Northern Illinois University. It is free and open to all, especially children and their parents.

Susan Reed is a classical violinist, folk musician, singer and storyteller from the Boston area. She is a multi-instrumentalist who uses original songs and stories to work magic with families. Her aim is to inspire a life-long love of music. Common to all of her performances is a trademark sense of humor and optimism, and her conviction that music has the power to broaden people’s understanding of the world around them.

The concert was made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts as part of the Arts Education in American Communities program. The aim is to extend and expand arts education throughout the United States.
