After discovering the harp at the age of 6 at the local music school, Miriam embarked on a journey that has taken her from her native Germany through Amsterdam to New York, where she recently graduated from the Juilliard School.


Along this way she obtained a Bachelor´s degree from the excellence programme of the Amsterdam Conservatory, played with the Nederlands Phiharmonisch Orkest as an academist for a year and became a prize-winner at the prestigious USA International Harp Competition.


Appearances in recent years have taken Miriam to halls across the world, such as Carnegie Hall in New York and the Concertgebouw Amsterdam. At the moment, she holds a season contract as Co-Principal Harpist with the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig.

Miriam´s passions lie in both orchestral and solo playing and she hopes to combine them both in her future career.
