About This Show

Miles Hoffman is renowned violist and artistic director of the American Chamber Players, with whom he regularly tours the United States and Canada. . He has also appeared as a soloist with many orchestras around the country, performing a broad repertoire that ranges from baroque to contemporary compositions, and he has been a featured lecturer for orchestras, universities, chamber music series, festivals, and various other organizations. Before joining Morning Edition as a commentator in 2002, Hoffman entertained and enlightened the nationwide audience of NPR's Performance Today every week for 13 years with his musical commentary, "Coming to Terms," a listener-friendly tour through the many foreign words and technical terms peculiar to the world of classical music. That segment eventually led to a book by Hoffman, "The NPR Classical Music Companion: Terms and Concepts from A to Z."

Miles is currently dean of the Petrie School of Music at Converse College in Spartanburg, South Carolina, and author of The NPR Classical Music Companion, now in its ninth printing from the Houghton Mifflin Company. He joins Dr. Edgar for a delightful conversation about the Petrie School, as well as music in general.
