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.
