California-born conductor Rebecca Miller has earned international acclaim for her compelling, insightful, and energetic presence on the podium and for her ability to communicate with audiences of all ages.

In 2017, Rebecca was also featured in the Bruno Walter National Conductors Preview with the Nashville Symphony.
