"What I strive for in all of the programming at Miller is to create world-class, one-of-a-kind experiences that people can't have anywhere else. We sit uniquely at the intersection of two enriching worlds — Columbia University's vibrant campus and the incredibly rich cultural landscape of New York City.
Music should be for more than special occasions, and I'm passionate about creating more opportunities for people to enjoy the communal experience of sitting in a room together to really listen. There's something incredibly beautiful about gathering together with a collective purpose that enables a very human connection. Putting creators front and center in public life is an important part of these connections. Art matters. I’m so fortunate to be a part of it."
