A Kind of Mirror with pianist Miki Sawada
A new work titled A Kind of Mirror with music by composer Brendon Randall-Myers and theater direction by Daniel Pettrow combines classical music with participatory theater, reflecting Mikis desires to make classical music more immersive, personal, and democratic. The music for solo piano and electronics, newly written by Randall-Myers, combined with standard classical pieces by Beethoven and Scriabin, will act as the pillars of the performance while audience members are invited to the stage to follow a theatrical prompt that inspires spontaneous poetic storytelling. The creation of this work is supported by a New Music USA grant.

About Miki:
Miki Sawada is a musician who is free-spirited in her pursuit of adventure and dedicated to creating meaningful relationships through a communal listening experience in spaces small and large, music old and new. She launched her project Gather Hear Tour with Gather Hear Alaska in 2017, driving around Alaska for three weeks with a piano in a van, performing 25 concerts in settings such as cafes, bars, lodges, galleries, schools, and parks.

Gather Hear Tour explores the idea of the piano as a central object of a gathering place  how we cant help but be drawn to sing, play, and listen when theres a piano in a room. It explores the social possibilities of classical music when taken out of a concert hall and into community gathering spaces. The goal is to perform free concerts in all 50 states in a quest to understand, document, and contribute to American life coast-to-coast through an artistic communal experience. In fall of 2018, Miki heads to West Virginia for the second chapter of tour to perform A Kind of Mirror.

Miki has performed in North America, Europe, and Asia at venues and occasions such as: Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, American Museum of Natural History, Helsinki Music Centre, Oneppo Chamber Music Series at Yale, Toronto Summer Music Festival, Music on Main (Vancouver), Chicago Symphony Centers Macys Day of Music, the Banff Centre, and radio stations WQXR (NYC), WFMT (Chicago), and KUAC (Fairbanks). When in NYC, she is active in the new music scene and performs at venues such as Roulette, Spectrum, DiMenna Center, and MATA festival. In the summers, she serves as a faculty member of Heifetz Institute, Point CounterPoint Camp, and Berkshire High Peaks Festival. Miki holds degrees from Yale School of Music, Eastman School of Music, and Northwestern University.
