Congratulations, Campanelli Handbell Ensemble on your successful 2017 East Coast Tour! We are pleased to announce that Kopli Kinokompanii is doing a sequel to “Dreaming Wide Awake!” The new documentary follows Campanelli Handbell Ensemble during their 2017 East Coast USA Tour. It will contain behind the scenes footage of their travels and music clips from the concert. The film will be released in 2018. Click HERE to order the original DVD.

An award winning, creative, and prolific composer, Susan is known internationally for her innovative original compositions and ability to write in a wide variety of styles, from traditional to jazz; gamelan to klezmer!

Two of my compositions “Cosmic BabyShards” and “Retro Baby Rap” were accepted by composer/curator, Liis Viira, for her Reverbeebi project for “Estonian Music Days.” It is one of the largest arts festivals in Estonia. This was an unusual project as it involved incorporating recordings Liis collected of babies who were born in Estonia in 2015 during their “Year of Music.”  The World Premieres of works (film, art and music, etc.,) from the 11 participants selected are on display at the "Estonian Museum of Theatre and Music.”
