|THANK YOU, SUSAN JUHL!
Our dear friend Susan Juhl has recently withdrawn from the Mendocino Theatre
Company's board of directors after nearly 25 years of service, so we thought this would be a good time to pay tribute to her contributions to the arts of our community.
Over the years, Susan has been president, vice-president, and secretary of the MTC board of directors; her calm rationality has helped MTC weather some serious storms, and she has made significant financial contributions to the company. Her artistic focus has been primarily in the realm of sound design. With imagination and a large music library to draw upon, she has chosen the background music and sound cues for many productions. Remember reel-to-reel tape? That was the medium when she began this work.
Susan was instrumental in getting KZYX on the air and in shaping its commitment to classical music. Many of you know her from her weekly radio show, "Loose Canon Classics"
And every spring, she gives a substantial scholarship to a local high school student who is going to college and boldly planning to major in one of the performing arts.
A thousand thanks, Susan Juhl! We could not be where we are without you.
