Described as "the star vocally, with soaring bright tones" (British Theatre Guide), Susan is an opera singer who graduated with distinction from Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Having gained nearly twenty years experience as a freelance singer, she is passionate about using her skills and experience to help the wider community through devising and leading school and community workshops, teaching privately, and specialising in Parkinson's and Dementia care through music.

"[Contessa] was exquisitely performed by the wonderful Susan Jiwey who brought suitable gravitas to her characterisation, but also revealed elements of Rosina's youthful 'joie de vivre'. Her Act III aria, Dove Sono, was the pinnacle of an expertly edited, deftly executed and well judged production."

Opera Vera, Le Nozze di Figaro, Remote Goat

“Susan Jiwey was pick of the pack as Fiordiligi: a really musical singer, with an emotional voice and artful phrasing.” Cosi Fan Tutte, Robert Thicknesse, Opera Now
