Sammy Miller and the Congregation
Friday, March 16 at 7:30 PM
Carnegie Hall (Lewisburg)
A native of Los Angeles, Sammy Miller has become known for his unique maturity and relentless focus on making music that “feels good” as a drummer, singer, and bandleader. Upon completing his master’s at The Juilliard School, Sammy formed his ensemble, The Congregation. As a band they are focused on sharing the power of community through their music—joyful jazz. Independently band members have performed/recorded with notable artists including Wynton Marsalis, O.A.R., Iron and Wine, Joshua Redman, Lee Fields, and Jason Moran at venues including the White House, Lincoln Center, and the Hollywood Bowl. As a group The Congregation has opted to stick together to create globally conscious music with the intention to spread joy throughout the world.
This engagement of Sammy Miller and The Congregation is made possible through the Jazz Touring Network program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
