Thank you so much for your excellent and informative lecture. I know you could tell by your reception that everyone was extremely enthusiastic about your presentation. It is very rare that even the most seasoned professors, who are used to speaking by the clock, can give a presentation that lasts exactly an hour. Maybe that is a function of your musical background? I know you could tell by the questions that many people who love and are quite knowledgeable about it attended as well. I know they will all be back to your next lecture. I can hardly wait.

Risë Walter, San Diego Opera - Facebook
University Book Club is proud to host Erica Miner, novelist, musician and writer of the arts.

"Erica Miner’s enthusiasm, energy, and deep knowledge of opera made this all-too-short series of presentations a great pleasure. I learned a lot about the composers, the history of opera, and more. She has organized her lectures with great skill, using musical clips and visual aids, so that no moment is wasted. She also allows ample time for questions and response. Leaving her class, I always wished I could dash next door to see one or more of the operas she had spoken about!"
Susan Toth, attendee - Gmail


"I attended the six session “Who’s Afraid of Opera” presented by Erica Miner at the La Jolla Community Center” in June, 2015. Although I have had much opera experience, I learned a great deal from Erica’s presentations. The inexperienced members also seemed to be engaged, interested and learning. Erica is very knowledgeable but beyond that, she presents her material with an understated enthusiasm borne of her palpable love of opera which shines through during her entire presentation, making it a great pleasure to be in her presence. I highly recommend her programs to all."

Wagner and Bernstein - Parallels and Contrasts

"I want to reemphasize my comments to you following your presentation to the Wagner Society of Southern California in San Diego yesterday. You were simply outstanding. Your presentation was a wonderful mix of Wagner’s glorious music, his life and many idiosyncracies and what the music is saying to us, and your personal experiences as a first violinist in the orchestra of the Metropolitan Opera playing Wagner’s demanding operatic works. Your talk was informative and thoughtful, and your presentation style held the audience glued to your every word. Your ability to stand in front of the attendees and deliver an extremely well organized and interesting presentation without notes makes you a very effective speaker. Your humor and candor both in the presentation and in answering questions added significantly to personal connection that you were able to establish with the Wagner aficionados, many of whom have in-depth knowledge of Wagner’s music and Wagner the man. Great job!!"

"I want to compliment you again on a great and very engrossing presentation for the volunteers at the Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad. Most of our volunteers have been very involved with the music business over the years and I noticed that they were very attentive during your talk. It was fun to hear about your background and the “behind the scenes” action for some of the big names in the opera business. I particularly enjoyed the CD of you playing the violin.

Although I have never been a devotee of opera, your talk was very intriguing. I received many complementary remarks from the audience after the talk. Hope to have you for an encore performance in the future."
