Board member recognized for contributions to arts and culture

Susan Osterberg, ROCO River Oaks Chamber Orchestra board member

It’s no surprise that the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra’s enterprising nature would attract the same qualities in its dedicated volunteers, some of whom are involved in many philanthropic projects in the city of Houston.

Such is board member Susan Osterberg, who gives of herself at every turn.

Susan’s passion was recently recognized by The Greater Houston Service Awards and Volunteer Houston. Susan was the recipient of the 2015 Greater Houston Service Award for Arts and Culture.

The Greater Houston Service Awards and Volunteer Houston believes that “a volunteer is a person who can see what others cannot see; who can feel what most do not feel. Often, such gifted persons do not think of themselves as volunteers, but as citizens – citizens in the fullest sense: partners in civilization.”

The staff at ROCO couldn’t agree more about how that description applies to Susan, a valuable and cherished friend who only wants the best for the organization, the musicians and classical music at large.

Everyone at ROCO congratulates Susan on this much deserved distinction.
