Cassandra Miller In Focus

Each year our In Focus series invites trailblazing composers to the RNCM. Behind the scenes they work closely with our staff and students, culminating in a compelling day of performances. This Autumn we’re delighted to welcome Dr Cassandra Miller.

Cassandra Miller (1976) is a Canadian composer of vocal, chamber and orchestral music, living in London, UK. Her works are published by Faber Music.

Cassandra received of one of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s 2021 Awards for Artists, and twice received the the Jules-Léger Prize for New Chamber Music, Canada’s highest recognition for composition—for Bel Canto in 2011 and About Bach in 2016.

Her works are often written with specific performers in mind, involving their intimate participation in the creative process. Her closest collaborators in this fashion have included soprano Juliet Fraser, the Quatuor Bozzini, conductor Ilan Volkov, cellist Charles Curtis, pianist Philip Thomas, violinist Silvia Tarozzi, violinist Mira Benjamin, and violist Lawrence Power.
