In their 15 years on the road they created and performed over 100 original songs, along with a touch of old time vaudeville, shtick and comedy. Norman and Suzy separated in the late 80s to pursue separate interests in Los Angeles and New York City, but reunite  every year to do a series of concerts for their fans on the east and west coasts. For this concert they will be joined by the gifted blues/jazz guitarist John Gerry Putnam.

You’ll also learn about the essential skills STEM students need to succeed in college, and how to make sure those same skills get noticed by an admissions officer.
