Conversations That Drive Action
Second Sundays at Round Hill are interactive, interview-style forums designed to encourage lively conversations at the crossroads of faith and culture. Our guests have been chosen for their demonstrated ability to stimulate thought and inspire us to act for the common good. A reception follows with an opportunity to continue the discussion with the guests.
On Sunday, September 10, at 4:00 p.m., we welcomed composer Mark Miller, who passionately believes that music can change the world. He has filled his life with joyful music that he composes, performs, teaches, and leads with the hope that it “will inspire and empower people to create the beloved community.” His collection of songs about love, reconciliation, and justice contain incredible depth and meaning, and offer powerful healing and hope. We live in unsettling times; through his own personal experiences and his beautiful way of seeing the world, Mark has been able to make music that speaks to the soul in times of struggle, despair, strife, and uncertainty.
Mark currently serves on the faculty at both the Drew Theological School and the Institute of Sacred Music at Yale University where he teaches music and worship. He is also Minister of Music at Christ Church in Summit, New Jersey. Mark received his Bachelor of Arts in Music from Yale University and his Master of Music in Organ Performance from Juilliard.
