Sue Hollingworth is a graduate of the Royal College of Music, where she studied voice. Sue divides her time between her work as a Choral Director and Music Educator. In 1990 she was awarded aChurchill Fellowship for her work with choirs. In 2010, she was awarded "Choir Master of the Year" by the Gramophone Magazine. This is a community music award, given to those who have made the greatest impact in their singing communities.

As well as being the Conductor of Sine Nomine International Touring Choir, Susan is Musical Director of Scunthorpe Co-operative Junior Choir. This open access choir won the overall title of BBC Radio 3 Choir of the Year in 2008. They took part in the BBC Proms in September 2009 singing Handel’s Messiah and received rave reviews. In 2000 they travelled to Sydney to take part in the Olympic Torch Processions; they sang at the opening night celebrations of the Millennium Dome and at the first Holocaust Memorial Service at Westminster. The Choir was chosen to make a BBC programme called "Take a Bow" about interesting activities children do after school and was the subject of a documentary on Radio 4.

Susan’s Music Education work includes workshops for Making Music, 20,000 Voices based in Northumberland, Sing for Pleasure and Youth Music. She has conducted Noye’s Fludde at the Three Choirs Festival and has created and conducted children’s concerts at the York Early Music Festival. She has also conducted the Minster Minstrels Vocal Ensemble for the National Centre of Early Music. With this organisation, she conducted 550 York school children at the Schools Proms to celebrate the 350th Anniversary of Henry Purcell. In December 2009, BBC Radio 3 invited her to lead performances of the Hallelujah Chorus in Glasgow and London, with participants who were new to singing and who were encouraged to join a choir. For the BBC, she also conducted an afternoon Family Prom in the Albert Hall, sharing the direction with Julia Regan, a former member of the Scunthorpe Cooperative Junior Choir. She has also adjudicated for BBC Radio 3 Choir of the Year, Coleraine, Elgin and Don Valley festivals.
