  6. Its a privilege to have been taught by Mrs. Barber. You were always a winner in her eyes, no matter what. She was always an uplifting influence and encouraged you to be yourself.

  7. The first time I met Sue Barber was over 20 years ago when I auditioned for Sweeney Todd. I walked in the room and here was this beautiful spitfire playing away on the electronic piano. I was so mesmerized at how fast she could read music and how beautifully she played. Sue was a mixture of so many amazing things. I worked with Sue many times in theatre and working with her was always a great joy because she always treated her cast with kindness and respect. I will miss her.

  8. Such a big loss to the arts community. Hopefully there is a more complete tribute to be posted later in the week.
