Miriam Engel – Assistant Manager, Education and Community Engagement
Education and Community Engagement
Miriam is driven by a desire to understand how people work and live, especially when these lives are infused with music. She believes that our community as a whole can benefit when we are all citizens of the arts; participating in a culture that embraces literature, music, theater, dance, and the visual arts fosters collaboration, nurtures creativity, and strengthens the spirit.
Miriam’s commitment to this cause was recognized by the Connecticut Arts Administrators Association in May 2017 during their annual Celebration of Arts Advocacy at the Connecticut State Capitol, for “outstanding support and advocacy of the arts in Hartford.”
A native of West Hartford, CT, Miriam received a Bachelor of Arts in Music at Smith College in Northampton, MA. She has held positions at Glimmerglass Opera as an Arts Administration Intern; Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts as a Theatrical Presentations Production Intern, working with the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra, Mark Morris Dance Group and the International Contemporary Ensemble; and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, as Washington National Opera’s Artist Services Coordinator. Miriam joined the staff of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra in August 2015.
