Tisa Schuurman (pronounced “TEE-suh SKER-muhn”) has played professionally in the Atlanta area for many years in styles as varied as orchestral, wind band, musical theater and jazz-funk fusion.  She appeared as the featured soloist on Alberto Ginastera’s Impresiones de la Puna with members of the Atlanta Community Symphony Orchestra and Atlanta Symphony twice in 2018.  Mrs Schuurman reprised her role as soloist on the work with members of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Maestro Juan Ramirez at a concert celebrating the International Day of the Migrant at Atlanta City Hall on December 13, 2019.

Mrs Schuurman is a graduate of the Hugh Hodgson School of Music at the University of Georgia, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in music performance, studying with Dr Ronald Waln. Other teachers include internationally renowned performer and recording artist, Amy Porter; and graduate-level studies with Paul Brittan, formerly of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
