Mieke is a Portland based multi-instrumentalist and educator. She performs regularly with the all-female sax quartet - Quadraphonnes; the Afro-Cuban band - Melao de Cuba; the 12-piece jazz chamber orchestra - Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble (PJCE), and tours with Ron Artis II & The Truth. Recent Portland Center Stage at The Armory productions include: In the Heights, The Color Purple, Fun Home, and Ain't Misbehavin'. Mieke also enjoys teaching private lessons at her home studio and as education coordinator for the PJCE, she heads the Young Jazz Composers and Alumni programs. She is heavily involved in promoting music education and loves collaborating with her music community. Music is the one outlet that (as author Tom Robbins might say) keeps the oxygen from leaking out of her life.
