President & CEO
Michael C. Miller became the President & CEO of the Renaissance Performing Arts Association in January 2010. His passion for the performing arts began at the age of six, when he performed on stage for the very first time. By the age of 12, he had debuted at The Kennedy Center, New York City Opera, the Metropolitan Opera and Los Angeles Civic Light Opera. Michael attended the College of Wooster and The Florida State University as a musical theater major and graduated from The Recording Workshop, as a recording engineer in 1982. He moved to New York City in 1983 and became the Vice-President of Soundprism Creative Services, Inc., and later the founder of MCM Productions. Michael programmed Electronic Music Mapping Systems for several Broadway shows including Chess, City of Angels, and Les Miserables in Paris. In 1993 he moved to Los Angeles and became the chief engineer of Sticky Notes, LLC., where he produced and engineered music for many films and television shows, including Party of Five, The Five Mrs. Buchannan's and The Crew. In 1996, Michael and his wife Deborah moved back to his home town of Mansfield, Ohio to raise his family. He has been President and owner of Miller's Diamond Jewelry, a 63 year old family business, since 1997. In 2002, Michael joined the board of directors of the Renaissance and was President of the Board from 2007-09. His combination of successful business owner and dedicated performing arts supporter, especially in the Mansfield community, gives him a unique understanding and appreciation for Renaissance Performing Arts.
