Sammy Miller & the Congregation

Saturday, March 9, 8pm

Post-Performance Q & A with the Artists – Saturday, March 9

A native of Los Angeles, Grammy nominated drummer Sammy Miller has become known for his relentless focus on combining theatre and making music that “feels good.” Upon completing his Master’s at The Juilliard School, he formed his ensemble, The Congregation. Award winning theatre incubator, Ars Nova selected The Congregation for the “Makers Lab” in 2017 to develop their genre-bending show, “Great Awakening.” While independently the band members (playing bass, piano, tenor sax and trombone) have performed and recorded with notable artists including Wynton Marsalis, Lady Gaga, and Queen Latifah at venues including the White House, Lincoln Center and the Hollywood Bowl, they have opted to stick together to spread “joyful jazz” throughout the world.

“We play joyful jazz – music that feels good. It’s a style
that entertains, enriches, but most of all uplifts.”
