Bill Birdsong Miller, an icon of the Native American music community, will share his unique sound with the campus on Thursday, December 1, 2011, at 7:30 p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.

Using three elements–his heritage, life experiences, and spiritual path–Miller shares his message of transformation through reconciliation. His list of accolades is lengthy and impressive: He has received six Native American Music Awards, including a 2007 Lifetime Achievement honor, and three Grammy Awards, among them his most recent for “Spirit Wind North,” which was named Best Native American Album in 2010. Well known for his beautiful performances on the flute, Miller was chosen to play flute on “Colors of the Wind” from Disney’s Pocahontas. He is also an accomplished composer, storyteller, and artist whose paintings are exhibited nationwide.

This presentation is part of the Arts and Lecture series. For more information, contact the Office of Student Life at 610-396-6067.
