SSO Holiday Concert is Saturday at SU

The Salisbury Symphony Orchestra at Salisbury University presents its annual Holiday Concert, “A Fandango Holiday,” 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10, in Holloway Hall Auditorium.

The concert culminates SU’s annual Winter Music Festival, “The Holidays with a Twist.”

Miller first performed with the SSO in 2009. Since giving his Carnegie Hall concerto debut with the New Chamber Orchestra of New York, he has appeared throughout the United States and abroad as a soloist, chamber musician, recitalist and teacher.

He gave the world premiere performance in Beijing of Xiogang Ye’s “Last Paradise,” which was recorded for broadcast in Asia and later released on CD. He has made several appearances in Brazil to tour, performing Tchaikovsky, Sibelius and Brahms concertos with the Orchestra Sinfonica de Campinas.

Miller is the co-founder and artistic director of the Three Bridges International Chamber Music Festival in Minnesota and was the artistic co-director of the Silver Bay Festival. He also has taught at the Foulger International Music Academy and the Intensive String Quartet Workshop at New York University, among others.

Admission is $25, $20 for seniors age 60 and older, $10 for SU faculty and staff, and $5 for students and children 18 and under. Advance tickets are available online at and at the Guerrieri University Center Information Desk.
