American pianist Kevin J. Miller recently collaborated for recitals with tenor Lawrence Brownlee (Carnegie Hall, Houston Grand Opera), countertenor John Holiday (Kennedy Center, London’s Barbican Centre), tenor Joseph Calleja and soprano Nadine Sierra (U. S. Supreme Court). He has also appeared with Calleja on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series. Miller prepared legendary soprano Jessye Norman for performances of Laura Karpman’s production of Ask Your Mama, which was performed at Carnegie Hall. He can be heard on the CD Been in da Storm So Long, partnering baritone Kenneth Overton. The New York native began in music as a boy soprano, singing with the Boys Choir of Harlem, while also studying piano with the late conductor/pianist Warren Wilson. During those years he began work as an accompanist, playing for the choir on international tours. After earning his Bachelor’s degree at the Mannes College of Music, he received both a Master of Music degree and the Artist Diploma in Collaborative Piano at The University of Michigan, working with Martin Katz. Miller has been a participant in such prestigious festivals and young-artist apprenticeships as the Tanglewood Institute of Music, Aspen Summer Music Festival, The Cleveland Art Song Festival, San Francisco Opera’s Merola Opera Program, and the Washington National Opera and Glimmerglass Festival young-artist programs. After completing his apprenticeship at Glimmerglass, he was invited to serve there as a vocal coach. Miller is currently a faculty member of the Moores School of Music at the University of Houston.
