Emily first appeared at the Meeting House in November 2019 in a stunning performance that ranged from Monteverdi and Bach to Broadway show tunes and included works by our own Patsy Rogers. She returned to the Meeting House in December 2020 for another memorable concert with her Clio Artists Project. Because of pandemic restrictions, only a few of us were able to hear that concert live, but you can still hear it online HERE. We are delighted to learn that Emily was awarded First Prize in the 44th Annual Lyndon-Woodside Oratorio Competition held at Riverside Church in August 2021.

Like Emily, Miles did his graduate work at the Yale School of Music where he studied piano and composition. Miles’s 2019-20 season included premieres of recent commissions from the Sounding Board Project, Yale Percussion Group, Aspen Contemporary Ensemble, and Yale Philharmonia. He has premiered over three dozen works

The Meeting House is pleased to be able to offer in-person performances again. Hope to see you there.
