Marilyn Miller was eight years old when she began singing in the school chorus. She has not shut her mouth since. She’s sung a little Opera, a little Music Theater, a little Classical, Standards and Folk music. She’s hauled her trusty guitar to accompany herself at political rallies, libraries, jails, schools and hospitals. She has tinkled the ivories to accompany herself in restaurants, clubs and social gatherings. She has sung weddings, funerals and other solemn events. She has sung solo, and in small groups and large ones here and abroad. She’s directed Choirs of all kinds – from children to septuagenarians. She’s composed scores of projects in her mighty mini electronic music studio.
And she’s loved it all.
It was a tad lonely.
Then one day, she met Mac, a loud-mouthed, opinionated Computer who loved every kind of music – and who could play them all. And he shared her love of Science Fiction, as well. It was a match made in – er, the Apple Computer factory. He plays, she sings and they argue very little. So long as she sings his favorite song once per concert, he’s happy. And as long as he doesn’t try to sing, she’s happy.
Lonely no longer, they are looking forward to seeing you all!
ADDENDUM by NICK Smith
Marilyn’s bio is remarkable brief and modest. While she doesn’t write filks, she is one of the finest singers in fandom, talented on multiple instruments, and for the last decade has sung in circles and conventions in California. She picks up filks and other songs from all sorts of places, and performs them beautifully. Because she also teaches music and computer skills, she has found a way to blend her various interests…
You’re in for a musical treat.
