Voice of Siri Susan Bennett to speak as part of MVCC Cultural Series
Apr 19, 2019
Mohawk Valley Community College will host the conversation, “Accidentally Famous,” with voice actor Susan Bennett, the original voice of “Siri,” at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 2, in Schafer Theater, Information Technology Building, at the College’s Utica Campus. This will be a moderated discussion between Bennett and MVCC President Randall VanWagoner, Ph.D. Admission is $15 general, $10 for MVCC employees, and free for MVCC students.
Bennett is the best-known unknown — she is Siri. With a strong personality and a sense of humor, Siri and the voice behind her, Bennett, tells her story of voice acting and how she became the original voice of Siri. Bennett, originally from Clinton, N.Y., had no idea she would someday be speaking to more than 100 million people worldwide through a not-yet-invented phone that would revolutionize technology, thrusting her into accidental fame.
Tickets for all Cultural Series events can be purchased in person at the MVCC Box Office, Information Technology Building room 106, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday-Friday, and at the College Stores on the Utica and Rome Campuses; online any time at www.mvcc.edu/tickets; or over the phone by calling 315-731-5721. Most Cultural Series events are $5 or less to the general public and many are free.
