Violist Miranda Sielaff has been featured in concerts at New York City’s
most prestigious and most cutting-edge performance spaces, including (Le)
Poisson Rouge, Miller Theater, Bargemusic, and Carnegie Hall. As a member
of the Caravel String Quartet, Miranda programs and performs on a concert
series entitled “Hearing the Sacred” at the Museum of Biblical Art. Praised
for its “ingenious and compelling” programming by critic Steve Smith, the
series has featured new and old works side by side in the context of hearing
sacred music in conjunction with specific art exhibits.
Miranda has played with The Knights since 2002. Other ensembles with which
she regularly performs include SONYC, Wet Ink, and Columbia Composers. She
has toured with the Lucerne Festival Academy, and in 2008 she was featured
in Carnegie Hall’s Making Music: Pierre Boulez. She can be heard on The
Knights’ two albums on the Sony Classical label and Lara St. John’s Mozart
recording on Ancalagon Records. Recent projects have included a
re-imagination of Ligeti’s Viola Sonata with jazz improvisers, and European
tours with The Knights and Arcos String Orchestra.
Miranda studied viola with Karen Ritscher at Rice University and Karen
Tuttle at the Juilliard School.
