Kenneth Miller is assistant professor of church music at the School of Theology and serves as organist and choirmaster of the Chapel of the Apostles. Before coming to Sewanee, he worked as associate organist-choirmaster at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Columbia, South Carolina, and as instructor of organ at the University of South Carolina. He studied organ and church music at Lenoir-Rhyne University, where his principal teachers were Florence Jowers and Paul Weber, and the Yale School of Music and Institute of Sacred Music, with Martin Jean and Thomas Murray. At Yale, he received the Charles Ives Prize for musicianship and the Aidan Kavanagh Achievement Prize for his thesis, which deals with the development of open score notation in 17th-century Germany. He maintains an active schedule as a choral accompanist, continuo player, and solo recitalist, specializing in late-Romantic repertoire (particularly Max Reger and Franz Schmidt) and the large-scale keyboard cycles of J.S. Bach (most recently, several performances of The Art of Fugue).
