Met Guild Names New President

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

The Metropolitan Opera Guild has named Richard J. Miller, Jr. as its new president.

Miller, a New York attorney who has been a member of the Guild's board since 2005 - and served as its treasurer for the past two years - will replace Susan S. Braddock to become the group's eleventh president.

"My passion for opera has been forged through roles as an artist and an arts leader and tempered by my positions as a businessman and attorney," Miller said, in a news release by 21C Media Group.

Miller's professional experience includes a 1998 appointment to serve as Chairman of the Nelson A. Rockefeller Empire State Plaza Performing Arts Center Corporation, as well as various affiliations with arts organizations including the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, according to 21C. In addition to working at the law firm Morris & McVeigh LLP, he also performs as a tenor.

Since 1935, the Guild has worked to foster enjoyment of opera through educational programs, the monthly OPERA NEWS, and supporting the New York Metropolitan Opera.
