Luine Miller with her son Jeff Baxter, ASO Choral Administrator 1992 came to work with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, where he currently serves as both Choral Administrator and a member of the tenor section. Luine is especially fond of the Chorus, and has accompanied them on several road trips, including a trip to Carnegie Hall in 1997, when Shaw led them in Brahms’ A German Requiem. It was a high point: “I’ve never heard anything that magnificent.” Then in 2008, Jeff persuaded her and a friend to accompany the Chorus to Berlin, where Donald Runnicles led the Chorus in the Berlioz Requiem with the Berlin Philharmonic. “We had an amazing time behind the scenes,” she said, “and when they were rehearsing, we were eating chocolate in the square.” Luine now lives in a retirement community with her husband, John Brice, and comes in for five or six concerts a year when her community arranges a bus for residents. She makes monthly recurring gifts to the ASO, so the impact is greater than she could do all at once. “Classical music is after my heart,” she added.

When speaking to ASO donors, the recurring themes are a love of music, a love of the Orchestra and a powerful commitment to ensure its future, which depends so much on their support. Celebrate the power of music, and help build the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s future with your friends and community by supporting the ASO Annual Fund.
