Suzan Erens (born November 11, 1976 in Heerlen, Netherlands) is a Dutch concert singer. Classically trained, her concert repertoire includes arias from opera and operetta as well as musical theatre and pop songs. She has toured worldwide and recorded as a soloist with Andre Rieu's Johann Strauss Orchestra.

Biography[edit]

Erens was born in Heerlen, a town in the south of the Netherlands, on 11 November 1976. As a young girl she began playing the violin and French horn. In her early teens she was discovered on her high school Sophianum (Gulpen) while singing a song in a school play. Soon after this performance, Suzan decided to study voice at the Academy of Music in Maastricht, the Netherlands.

While studying at the academy she started her career as an opera singer at Opera Zuid in Maastricht. She performed in several operas during her study and toured with Opera Zuid through the Netherlands. In her final year (1999) at the academy she came to the attention of André Rieu, who hired her as a vocalist with his Johann Strauss Orchaestra. In addition to global touring with the orchestra, Erens has performed as a soloist on several of Rieu's albums and television specials.

Since 2000, highlights of her performances included several songs from well-known musical plays and films, including "Over the Rainbow" (from The Wizard of Oz), "I belong to me" (from Elisabeth), "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" (from "Evita"), and music by Wojciech Kilar from the film "The Ninth Gate."

In the beginning of 2009 she left the Johan Strauss Orchestra to begin a life in Norway. She is singing now with the Vefsn Ensemble,[1] with whom she sings various types of music, mostly opera and musical. She has also expanded her repertoire to pop music, including work from artists such as Jeff Buckley and The Carpenters.

Personal life[edit]

Erens is married to Mitch Mulders, a guitarist.[2]
