Pianist and MOR artistic director Mina Miller studied at the Manhattan School of Music and earned her PhD in Music from New York University. She performed solo recitals at London’s Wigmore Hall, the Tivoli International Music Festival (Copenhagen), and the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival (Finland); concert engagements took her throughout North America, Great Britain, Europe, and Scandinavia. In 1998, her career as a recitalist and concerto soloist metamorphosed when she founded Music of Remembrance and began serving as the organization’s president and artistic director. Miller’s bold leadership has made Music of Remembrance the home of “some of Seattle’s best musicians” (Seattle Times), and has drawn national attention by commissioning new works from American composer luminaries such as Paul Schoenfield, Jake Heggie, Tom Cipullo, Lori Laitman, and Thomas Pasatieri, among others. Recognized as an authority on Holocaust-era music and musicians, Miller has lectured in Seattle and internationally on the precious cultural and artistic legacy that escaped Nazi destruction.
