Miller is no stranger to bringing classical music to young audiences. Previously, he worked as a conductor for the Los Angeles Philharmonic where, among other things, he would conduct Symphonies for Youth concerts.

“They (children) come away having learned a great deal without realizing they have been learning,” said Miller. “It doesn’t matter if the kids know about Indy, it’s a great way to introduce them to all these great composers.”

Miller said the concert is not just for the kids since the music goes back in time nearly 300 years.

“It’s appropriate for anyone from 4 to 104 — a lot of senior citizens come too,” said Miller. “There is an instrument petting zoo where all the kids can come to the lobby at 2 p.m. Sunday before the show and check out all the instruments, so it really is a family activity. I hope everybody will come down and have fun with us.”

When Miller went to Los Angeles to accept his Grammy, he was able to bring his son Ari, a student at Bethlehem High School with him.

“It was thrilling and my youngest son, Ari, accompanied me, and we spent two days in L.A. We got to see all these amazing pop acts. It was really thrilling,” said Miller.
