The Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra & Music School has named Tania Miller to succeed that late Bramwell Tovey for the coming season, in an interim capacity.

Miller, 52, was headhunted by Tovey in his dying weeks as his favoured replacement.

She is a former music director of the Victoria Symphony in Canada.

    My friends in Victoria were impressed by her. Metro Providence is about four and a half times as large as greater Victoria, so this seems to be a good step up for her.

    Good luck to Canadians that were mandated with that liquid s$it, and to hell with those skankers in ‘power’.

  • Professional timpanist says:

    Tania is a fantastic conductor. I have worked with her many times. They will be lucky to have her.

    • John Chunch says:

      Yup. It’s a disgrace that some of the big 5 haven’t given her a closer look. She’s a generational talent.
