Meet Tasha Miller, Soprano 2

Tasha Miller is the OCWC’s Conducting Intern for the 2019 – 2020 season. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in music education with an emphasis in choral studies, and her single subject teaching credential in music from California State University, Fullerton. Tasha is currently working as a first through fourth grade vocal music teacher for the Redondo Beach Unified School District. Her goal as a music educator is to provide a fun, engaging, and inclusive learning environment that support students as they develop music literacy, singing fundamentals, and an understanding of how music can be incorporated into aspects of life that are not directly related to performing arts. Tasha hopes to not only grow students’ musical knowledge, but to make a positive difference in their overall education.

Throughout her undergraduate studies, Tasha was a member of CSUF’s Concert Choir, and has prepared Bernstein’s “Chichester Psalms,” Mendelssohn’s “Elijah,” Mozart Requiem, Faure Requiem, and many other choral classics. Tasha studied voice with her mentor and Professor; Linda Leyrer. As a CSUF choral department student, she has been in performances with Andrea Bocelli, Tori Kelley, Deborah Voigt, Kathleen Battle, and Rod Gilfry. She was also given the opportunity to perform with CSUF’s Concert Choir at the California All- State Music Education Conference in San Jose, California. Additional experiences include attending Music Associates of Southern California Community College’s Conferences in San Diego and San Francisco in 2012, 2013 and 2014, in which she was a featured soloist. Additional achievements include scholarships for academic excellence, and the recipient of the Irvine Valley College Jenny Richards Memorial Endowed Vocal Music Scholarship in 2013. Tasha has taken choral performance tours through Germany, Austria and Prague.

Tasha is thankful for the unique privilege to be Conducting Intern for the Orange County Women’s Chorus, and highly values the opportunity to expand her conducting expertise and knowledge as music educator.
