Meira is very prominently featured on the September 2 edition of Performance Today, In Response to Mozart. The third movement Dance of Truth from her Tekeeyah (A Call) for shofar, trombone and orchestra and her As the Waters Cover the Sea (A Tribute to Mozart) both open the program, and are followed by Meira’s commentary.
