Hello and welcome to my website
Thank you very much for showing interest in my undertakings and I invite you to browse through the various sections at your leisure.
As a start, I was born in Adelaide, South Australia, later graduated with my music degrees at the Elder Conservatorium, University of Adelaide and shortly afterwards moved to Switzerland.
Years later, in 2009, I unexpectedly began composing, writing song texts and poetry and thanks to many supportive colleagues have since been able to have my works performed, recorded, produced, published and distributed.
A collection of works can also be found online, via CD, sheet music or on YouTube with SusannahSnow’s Channel.
Hoping you enjoy my music,
I had recently received Martin Conrad’s very moving Corona-Virus prayer and was permitted to set it to music and sing it at the organ during Communion at the evening Masses in the Church of St. Peter and Paul, Zurich on March 14th/15th. The above recitation was recorded with my home studio piano/organ.

I am most honoured and in deepest gratitude that “To be an Artist”, a 40′ CD of Art songs sung by Carmela Konrad, soprano together with myself at the piano has now been newly released and can be found at The Rosengart Collection Museum, Lucerne and Musik Hug, Zurich. This CD has evolved over a period of about 8 years and has been inspired by art and artists including the Swiss artist Paul Klee, further Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Joan Miró and Georges Braque. I am further honoured and most grateful to have been able to include pictures in the 12 page CD booklet which have been kindly permitted by The Rosengart Collection Museum, Lucerne.
In the next weeks the sheet music of all songs on “To be an Artist” will also be available including
“The Four Leaf Clover” and “To be an Artist” dedicated to Dr. Angela Rosengart
“The Art Gallery” dedicated to Dr. Martina Kral and
“A School of Fish” dedicated to my parents.
Further, I am very happy that a CD project for soprano and piano which has spanned over the period of 10 years has now finally taken flight with 22 songs about birds, flowers and The Angel of Peace: “feathers and flowers”. I am again in immense gratitude to the soprano Carmela Konrad with her moving and sparkling interpretation, a team of expert sound engineers, graphic artists, photographers and my publisher and distributor emanomusic / emanomedia. “feathers and flowers” is now available at Musik Hug Zurich, Musik Center Sursee and other outlets.
And I am so very grateful to all who help my music and texts reach others! A large part of the sales will continuously be donated to those in need – especially charity projects for children.
Last month I began teaching the piano online from my home studio. It makes me think of how it must have been for the children living in the outback in the days of School of the Air in Australia.
I hope you will join me and be in the “online congregation” attending the LIVE streaming of the 9.15 am Mass in the Church of St. Peter and Paul, Zurich on Easter Monday!
Wishing you the very best of health and a blessed Eastertime!
