Miller’s homecoming takes surprising turn with CSO

By PHOEBE SMITH • Special to

Oneonta native Cassandra Miller said she never imagined leading the Catskill Symphony Orchestra when she returned home two years ago, but now that she has officially been upgraded from interim to full-time executive director, she is excited about upcoming plans.

Miller, who had been in an interim role since March, spoke with AllOtsego not long after she shed the tag in July.

“(I hope to) bring my background and be able to open up the organization to new audiences,” she said.

Miller graduated from Boston University in 2006 with a degree in journalism.
