Bruce Miller honored

On Friday, Oct. 27, during the Family Weekend College Choir Concert in St. Joseph Memorial Chapel, Director Bruce I. Miller was presented with a plaque in recognition of his 25 years of service to the College Choir.

"The plaque is a testimonial to Professor Miller's musicianship and devotion to the performing arts at Holy Cross," explains George A. Ashur '79, the choir's accompanist from 1975-1979. Ashur presented the plaque to Miller.

As the College's choral director, Miller has presented most of the major choral monuments with orchestral accompaniment. In addition to various domestic touring destinations, including New York City and Disney World, the group has given concert tours in Ireland, England and the Vatican, where the College Choir sang for His Holiness, Pope John Paul II. 

Miller's other activities include stage and music direction for various Holy Cross theatrical productions. He recently garnered national media attention for his rare findings in music and film. In 1999, he and his colleague, Helga Perry, announced the discovery of a lost duet in H.M.S. Pinafore, the ballad, "Reflect, My Child." This past June, he and Perry disclosed a discovery in the Gilbert & Sullivan canon of the first trace of music for the previously lost "De Belville Song" in the operetta Iolanthe. Most recently, Miller provided the sound track for the promotional trailer for "The Rogue Song," a 1930 two-tone Technicolor movie for which most of the film has been lost.
