It is a time for Dranoff2 to celebrate people who have made a difference in the world of music and in the world of our community. Today we celebrate "our" Susanna Moross Tarjan on her birthday.
Susanna comes from a keystone family of American 20th century music and has been carrying forward the legacy of her father, the composer Jerome Moross.
She was part of the founding of the Dranoff2 Foundation and was a dedicated member of the Dranoff board for decades. Now emeritus, she deserves all the thanks we can express for her tireless work, advice and generosity. Thank you!
Her special passion was bringing music to children. She helped start the Dranoff2 Youth Competition which was part of the Orange Bowl festival, and was instrumental in creating PIANOSLAM, our performance and arts integration program.
From all of us - Happy Birthday, Susanna!
