Hailed as an “impeccable” performer (Boulder Daily Camera), Paul Miller has been heard all around the United States as a soloist on the violin, viola and viola d’amore. Recent solo engagements have included the National Cathedral in Washington, DC, the Hawai`i Performing Arts Festival, and the Washington Bach Consort. Paul is in the process of performing all eight Vivaldi viola d’amore concertos with the Philadelphia-based ensemble “Vox Ama Deus.” He directs the Cornell Baroque Orchestra in Ithaca, NY and teaches at the Rocky Ridge Music Festival in Estes Park, Colorado.
Also active as a scholar, Paul is an expert on the music of Karlheinz Stockhausen, and has published his work in Perspectives of New Music, Music and Letters and Twentieth-Century Music. He is currently working on a project with Smith College for their Spring 2015 exhibit of artwork by Stockhausen’s wife and collaborator, Mary Bauermeister. Having served on the faculties of Temple University and the University of Colorado in Boulder, Paul is now in the second year of a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in Music Theory at Cornell University. He studied at Vassar College, New England Conservatory, Harvard University, and received graduate degrees in viola performance and music theory from the Eastman School of Music.
