I am a music industry consultant that brought musical talent to the attention of Susan Marchese and helped her judge that talent and determine the winners for her annual Harc Foundation Award Event.Among the musical award winners the year I participated was a young man by the name of Loren Gold who went on to be one of the premier music directors in the country.He has served as M.D, to Kelly Clarkson, Roger Daultry, Hillary Duff,Dancing with the stars,American Idol,to name a few.There is no doubt in my mind that Harc Award launched his career.....Harvey Cooper

The HARC Foundation is a very important, and exquisitely run non-profit whose mission is to find and support artists while rehabilitating children. It is a huge undertaking and has been successful since its inception 20 years ago. The Director and founder, Susan Marchese is passionate, brilliant, organized, dedicated, and loyal to HARC. All at once. Susan has given painters, poets, playwrites, musicians, composers thousands of dollars in award moneys, but more important, she has given them jump starts into larger careers as well as confidence and stamina. I cannot say enough about HARC, its mission which is two fold, and its stamina and dedicated devotion.

My own organization, Access To Music was given a stipend, and I was able to introduce an emerging composer on behalf of ATM, but through the generosity of HARC.

I wouldn't do anything different. It is brilliant.
