Timothy Lee Miller/composer

In November 2017 I completed a commission for an art song based on the Joyce Kilmer poem The House With Nobody In It. It was commissioned by the Phildelphia-based ensemble illumine, a family-based trio of mezzo-soprano, violin and piano. The premiere of the work is scheduled for July 20-21, 2018 in concerts at New Goshehoppen Unitarian Church in East Greenville, PA and Main Line Unitarian Church in Devon, PA respectively.

Other recently completed works include When leaves begin to fall for flute/piccolo, clarinet, percussion, piano, violin and cello, which received its premiere performance on June 8, 2018 at the Mostly Modern Festival in Saratoga Springs, New York. The work is about my mom's plight with Parkinson's related dementia, which ultimately claimed her life.

New works in progress:

I was asked to collaborate on a solo guitar piece for guitarist Tom Torrisi who I met at the Mostly Modern Fesitval in June 2018. I am hopeful to have the work completed by the end of 2018.

Also in the works is The Bird Lady, an opera in two acts. A short synopsis is as follows:

A universal story about opposites, self-sacrifice and the struggle to protect what one loves. An eccentric young woman known as the Bird Lady lives a life of timeless simplicity in a well-tended garden with only her equally eccentric old gardener for human company -- until a brash young man determined to build his dream home buys the adjoining lot. When the Bird Lady and her new neighbor clash over the felling of a tree planted squarely on the property line, sparks fly.

The libretto is by Germaine Shames, with additional lyrics by Linda Marcus and Julie Meyers. The story sprung from the imaginations of the composer and the librettist as inspired by the lyrics of Marcus and Meyers (Mourning Dove and The Hummingbird).  The hopeful (optimistic) completion date of the opera is sometime in mid-2019.
