DeKALB – The Northern Illinois University Community School of the Arts presents a family concert by Susan Reed, an acclaimed musician known for great songs and storytelling, at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2, in the Recital Hall in the Music Building, 400 Lucinda Ave. in DeKalb.

It is free and open to all, and is especially geared toward children and their parents. Reed is a classical violinist, folk musician, singer and storyteller, a multi-instrumentalist who uses original songs and stories to inspire a lifelong love of music. Common to all of her performances is a trademark sense of humor and optimism, and her conviction that music has the power to broaden people’s understanding of the world around them. The concert was made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts as part of the Arts Education in American Communities program.
