Monnette Sudler (LTA ‘11, ACG ‘15, ‘14) Featured in WHYY-FM Interview

Monnette Sudler (LTA '11, ACG '15, '14) was interviewed by Alex Lewis for a WHYY-FM / NewsWorks broadcast. Listen to "Musician and composer Monnette Sudler is Philadelphia’s 'First Lady of Guitar'" here. (March 1, 2017)

Monnette Sudler says the guitar feels less like an instrument and more like a part of her body.

“Because now, at this point in my life, when I pick it up, it just feels natural,” she says from her apartment in Germantown. “I'm supposed to hold it, and it's really just an extension of myself now. Whatever I'm trying to convey — if it's excitement, or if it's love or blues, happy times or gratefulness — I believe I convey that.”
