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.  There she met her future husband Richard.  Susan received instruction in organ performance from Phillip Gehring at Valparaiso University and later from Richard Resch, founder of The Kantorei, at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  She completed her B.M. in Kansas.  Because of her love for sacred 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, head of the Public Relations/Advertising program, 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.
