Tania is wearing a black suit jacket with a white shirt and is standing in front of a white brick wall. She is facing the camera straight on.Canadian Conductor Tania Miller has distinguished herself as a dynamic interpreter, musician and innovator. Maestra Miller was Music Director of Canada’s Victoria Symphony for 14 years, and was named Music Director Emerita for her commitment to the orchestra and community.  She has distinguished herself as a visionary leader and innovator with a deep commitment to contemporary repertoire and composers and has gained a national reputation as a highly effective advocate and communicator for the arts. An avid writer about music and the arts, her writing has been featured in Symphony Magazine, Toronto’s Globe and Mail, and Better Humans.

Chelsea is sitting in a relaxed angle on a white couch. She has her elbow on the arm of the couch and her fist under her chin. She is looking to the side as if staring out a window.Chelsea Guo has already attracted international attention as a pianist and soprano of remarkable gifts. Her dual artistry is featured in her 2021 debut recording, “Chelsea Guo: Chopin in My Voice”, which includes beloved Chopin solo repertoire, along with two Chopin songs and one Rossini aria in which the artist accompanies herself. The inclusion of the Rossini aria is typical of many of the concert programs Chelsea offers, which include both piano and vocal works, enriching the opportunity for her audience to experience music in a broader context and displaying the influence that singers had on composers of their time. Gramophone Magazine included the recording in their Essential New Albums and Classic FM featured Chelsea for an entire week as a “Young Classical Star.” The album reached #7 on the Billboard Traditional Classical Chart and received five stars from BBC Music Magazine, which wrote: “Here is a rare talent.”
