Serge Suny, Composer/Pianist, is a graduate of the Juilliard School (B.S.M.S.) where he studied with Peter Mennin and Beveridge Webster. His works have been performed in Town Hall and Carnegie Recital Hall where they were well reviewed by the New York Times…”the three short songs by Mr. Suny were single, well-made and charming”. Herald Tribune: “Serge Suny’s Toccata proved it to be an attractive and effective vehicle for Mr. Guttman’s considerable technique and an extremely well written work for the instrument”. Mr. Suny is a member of the Long Island Composers Alliance where he served as Business Director, Publicity Director and Vice President. He has been awarded a number of Meet the Composer grants. His Brief Encounters for piano was recorded on CAPSTONE Records. Mr. Suny is a retired professor from Suffolk Community College where he taught for twenty-six years.
