About the Author, Alexander Suczek
In addition to his longtime service to Pro Musica Detroit, Alexander Suczek’s involvement in classical music and the arts began while a student at Harvard University as a company member of the Brattle Theater. Since then, Suczek has performed as a classical guitarist and folk and art singer and headed a summer concert series for 25 years. For the past several years, he has authored a weekly column in the Grosse Pointe News, "State of the Arts." In 2006, he was decorated by the Austrian government for promoting that country’s image in arts and music in the United States. Now retired, he was a writer and executive for Campbell-Ewald. He now spends his time at his homes in Grosse Pointe Farms and South Padre Island, Texas.
The Witness of Music: A few weeks back I had the pleasure of attending a reading with Alexander Suczek, former president of Pro-Musica Detroit and author of The Witness of Music: 50 Years of Pro-Musica Detroit published by Marick Press. Pro-Musica is a national organization dedicated to stage up and coming musicians and composers. Pro-Musica Detroit has been up and running in this city for 81 consecutive years.
