Though she studied classical piano as a child, Miller took up the flute in college after reading some passages about the instrument in a yoga book. It turned out to be more than a whim. By the end of her first year, she was studying in France with famed classical virtuoso Jean-Pierre Rampal. Three years later, Miller graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in music. Inspired by her love of sacred vocal music, she developed a style she calls "the singing flute." Over the years, Miller has arranged and transcribed sacred classical scores, choral works, and spirituals for her own performances, involving flute, harp, piano, and cello to create prayerful, uplifting works. In 1983 she launched the independent record label Radhika Miller Music (RRM) and has since released over a half-dozen high-quality albums that include soulful interpretations of Gregorian chant, Palestrina, Bach, Debussy, Telemann, Vaughan Williams, American spirituals, and Irish folk music in addition to her own compositions and improvisations. ~ Linda Kohanov
