This holiday season, Paradox Players featured talented piano player Suzette Emberton in their production of “A Christmas Carol,” adapted by Christopher Schario and directed by Barbara Abbate. Emberton’s skilled piano playing made the Charles Dicken’s play come to life during its December run at the First Unitarian Universalist Church. The artist entertained the audience with her angelic Soprano voice as folks filled the pews.
During our interview, I asked her how she came to play the piano and sing at this production. “My daughter was asked to be one of the narrators,” she responded. “Then someone asked me if I play piano and that is how it all happened!”
The multi-talented artist plays piano, keyboards and vocals and enjoys playing and singing in a variety of musical styles. “I am a software professional although I have taught piano some years ago in my younger days. I also perform with the First Unitarian Choir here at the church and am part of Panoramic Voices and Inversion Ensemble.”
The production of this classic tale of Scrooge would not have been the same without this gifted musician who made everyone get into the holiday spirit with the sounds of Christmas.
