Ms. Susan Haven had worked for the State of Texas for over twenty years before joining University Bands. As the Administrative Assistant to the Director of Music Activities, she provides staff support for all of the Texas A&M bands and orchestras, coordinates student and staff travel, and handles other special projects.
Ms. Haven’s music career began with a singing solo in first grade. This experience did not go well, leading her to join the band in fourth grade and continue until graduation from high school. When her two sons were old enough to begin band, she jumped right in and served as a band chaperone and band booster officer. She still plays oboe with several community groups and her goal is to one day scrape the perfect reed. Her husband Mark works for the Rec Sports Department and they spend their summers following their youngest son’s corps with Drum Corps International.
