Composer Robert Miller was formally trained at the Mannes College of Music in New York City and studied privately with American Masters William Schuman and Aaron Copland. Miller has written several works that have been performed by orchestras nationwide. He has been the Composer-In-Residence with the New York-based Jupiter Symphony from 1996 - 1999. The New York Pops performed his orchestrations to Leonard Bernstein's famed West Side Story Variations at Carnegie Hall. In addition to his symphonic efforts, Miller is considered among the top echelon of composers working in television and commercials.
Some of his recent film projects include a feature documentary, Why We Fight, directed by Eugene Jarecki, which won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance 2005 and will be released on Sony Classics this November. They also include a documentary film, Anytown USA, and the short film, Vuelo, directed by Jim Gartner. Miller completed scoring for two films in the Tribeca Film Festival 2005: Red Doors (winner of NY, NY Best Narrative Feature Award) and Runaway. Both Runaway and Why We Fight will also be included in the upcoming Toronto Film Festival. Currently, Miller is working on a short film by Alan Martinez called Intelligence. In addition to his latest film projects, Miller recently composed music for the play Eve-olution, which debuted at the Cherry Lane Theatre in New York City.
