Oral History Information
Susan Mazer and her husband, Dallas Smith, established the C.A.R.E. Channel, which serves over a thousand hospitals by providing peaceful and relaxing music 24 hours a day. Their goal was to reduce the noises of a healthcare setting and to help patients benefit from the healing power of music. Along her incredible musical journey, Susan has helped design electro-acoustic harps, has worked with leading harp manufacturers, became a sought after jazz harpist, played with Frank Sinatra (among many others), and earned her doctorate with the goal of using music to help those in need. Her understanding of the many benefits of music and her resulting work has indeed helped countless people.
