biography

Linda Miller’s singing career began in Toronto, where she graduated from University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance. Early appearances included Mozart’s Coronation Mass and Handel’s Messiah prior to her winning first place in the Vocal Category of the Canadian Music Competition. Following that victory, she sang with Ottawa’s Opera Lyra performing excerpts from 19th century Canadian Opera. Her Toronto operatic debut the role of Constanza in Mozart’s Entfurung aus dem Serail for Toronto Operetta theatre was followed by Bertrade in Massenet’s Griselidis for Toronto’s Opera in Concert.

After winning the contract to sing in the Martin Scorsese film, Age of Innocence, Ms. Miller sang in concert at Toronto’s Glenn Gould Theatre and was heard on various television and radio programmes. Her interview with Peter Gzowsky on CBC’s Morningside remains a highlight.

After returning to Calgary, Linda sang for Alberta Ballet in two productions of Strauss’ Vier Letzte Lieder, the first with renowned choregrapher Rudi van Dantzig. Alberta Ballet brought her back for Orff’s Carmina Burana, and on the reprise of the Strauss she also sang excerpts from Carmen.

Ms. Miller has sung numerous times with the Calgary Philharmonic under the baton of Hans Graf. These performances included Mozart Concert Arias, the role of Alice Ford in Verdi’s Falstaff, Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Her performance of Clärchen’s Lieder from Beethoven’s Egmont was broadcast on CBC.

Since her return to the stage in 2016, Linda Faye Miller has performed with twice with Calgary Concert Opera Company, most recently in the role of Violetta in Verdi’s La Traviata.

Miller is delighted to collaborate in concert with Flamenco Dancer, Anastassiia La Musa and violinist Jonathon Lewis in Tierra de Luz, an extraordinary dance and music event in which they combine classical Spanish opera and song with traditional and modern Flamenco. The concert culminates with a performance of Barcelona, written by Freddie Mercury which he sang with Spanish soprano, Monserrat Caballé to open the 1988 Summer Olympics in Spain. Calgary’s Robert Antonius Voltaire (R. A.V.) joins Linda for this tour de force meeting of rock and opera.
