Stream the world premiere of "The Knock" by Aleksndra Vrebalov and Deborah Breevort to see Mia portray Aishah McNair.
Opera News describes her as "Particularly captivating … whose voice seems so well-suited to slip between speech and song that when she does let loose it is enormously gratifying."

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Mia stayed at home, sequestered in her apartment in Minneapolis, MN for a total of 412 days. In April 2021, With the help and support of Minnesota Opera, she created a one woman show which she produced, directed, filmed, edited, choreographed and performed from her apartment. 

 

In her showcase, Self-Love: My Remedy in the Pandemic, she takes you inside her journey to self-love while staying at home during the pandemic using the self-love tree, branches and definitions created by Christine Arylo from The Path of Self-Love School. Mia set a program where she performed opera and Broadway favorites to reflect each of the branches and the root of the self-love tree. She hopes as you watch, you are inspired to go on your own, individual self-love journey and take the precious time to get to know and love yourself!

In October 2020, Mia was thrilled to win the Social Justice Prize in the Opera MODO Detroit Aria Competition: COVID Edition. She created her first music video to the aria "Bring my baby back" from Blue by Jeanine Tesori and Tazewell Thompson. 

In addition to the prize, half of the total application fees were donated to the organization of her choice:  Communities United Against Police Brutality in Minneapolis, MN.

In 2019, Mia made her operatic debut with The Glimmerglass Festival as a Young Artist in the world premiere of Blue by Jeanine Tesori and Tazewell Thompson. She portrayed the role of Girlfriend 3/Congregant and covered the Mother. Check out this video featuring scenes from Blue!
