Trudy Weaver Miller

 

Owner & Managing Director

Trudy Weaver Miller was program director of the Schubertiade Festival at the Tisch Center for the Arts at the 92nd Street Y in New York for its ten-year run in the 1980s-1990s. During that time she worked closely with its protagonist, the late German baritone Hermann Prey, and produced concerts featuring Mr. Prey, along with pianists James Levine and András Schiff, and the Tokyo String Quartet, Juilliard String Quartet, and the New York Chamber Symphony, among many others. Each year the Festival integrated performances of Schubert’s music with gallery exhibits, day-long symposia, vocal master classes, and other humanities events. Ms. Weaver Miller and Schubertiade musicological advisor and writer, Dr. Christopher Gibbs (Bard College), were honored with the 1998 ASCAP-Deems Taylor Award for a 68-page Schubertiade concert program book, “Schubert’s Final Years,” published in 1997.

Ms. Weaver Miller has been involved in the classical music industry in many capacities. She began her arts administration career as an assistant in the vocal division with the Thea Dispeker Artist Management firm; she was a partner in Die Schöne Müllerin Music Services, a classical music production company; and she worked as a production consultant for the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Film Society of Lincoln Center, Landmark Performances at Town Hall, the University Musical Society in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and for the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP), based in Washington, DC.

In 1998, Ms. Weaver Miller was named executive director of Berkshire Choral International in Sheffield, Massachusetts. She retired as President & CEO of that organization in March 2010, having served for nearly twenty years in many capacities. She continues to be involved with Berkshire Choral in the summers as its program editor.

A mezzo-soprano, she performed as soloist with regional orchestras and opera companies and was an active professional chorister in the New York concert scene for many years. She now lives in the Berkshires with her family.
