“We are very excited to bring Mixology to our Music with a Mission concert series,” said Dr. Richard Nickerson, Minister of Music for NWUC. “Susie Pepper grew up in the area and has performed on stages around the Lakes Region for over 15 years. We are especially excited to hear them perform some of the most popular love songs from her recently released ‘First Dance’ CD.”
