Over the course of his career, Mr. Miller has performed in twenty-five foreign countries spanning five continents in addition to all 48 states within the continental US. He has performed in nearly every major concert hall in the world including the Mozarteum, Carnegie Hall, Suntory Hall, Tokyo Opera City, the Barbican to name but a few. His recordings with Empire Brass, which include Class Brass: Firedance and The Glory of Gabrieli, can be heard exclusively on the Telarc Label. In 2002, Mr. Miller released the first of two solo CD’s on the MSR Label entitled From Bach to Bernstein and in 2006 released his Solos for the Horn Player. His orchestral experience includes principal positions with the New World Symphony and the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra.
