Hailed by Gramophone Magazine for her “superlative artistry,” “effortless virtuosity and musical intelligence,” Crista Miller is the Director of Music and Organist at Houston’s Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, where she led the Organ Committee responsible for Pasi’s Opus 19 pipe organ. She leads a growing music organization; directs the Schola Cantorum, Cor Jesu and children’s choirs; and oversees the concert series.
As solo organist, Dr. Miller has performed in Lebanon, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Ireland, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Sweden, and Canada, and in 20 states of the USA, and is an award-winner in international and national playing competitions (Odense; Fort Wayne; San Antonio; semi-finalist in AGO’s National Young Artists’ Competition in Organ Playing). Her 2014-15 Individual Artist Grant from the Houston Arts Alliance and the City of Houston created three organ and visual arts programs, leading to a recording with Acis Productions, the double-CD Bonjour and Willkommen: A Franco-German Debut, is available now. The “ambitious nature” of this project was noted by International Organists’ Review as “admirable and [a] very good advocate for the performer.”
Passes are a suggested donation of $18; available online at
