Musician

Dr. Susan Waters

God put Susan in the world in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as one of seven children of a Lutheran pastor who later accepted a call to Cleveland, Ohio. Susan received instruction in organ performance from excellent teachers such as Phillip Gehring at Valparaiso University and Richard Resch, founder of The Kantorei, at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She also completed a Bachelor of Music degree in organ performance while living in Missouri with her husband and two children. Because of her love for music, Susan has been an active church organist since the age of 16. She is an Associate Professor at ETSU in the Media and Communication Department and the Brand & Media Strategy graduate program coordinator.  Susan earned her Ph.D. in Communication Studies at The University of Kansas and has served on the faculties of Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri, and Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama.  She is enjoying life here in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of East Tennessee and happy to have the opportunity to serve as Holy Trinity’s organist!
