He has been soloist with a host of ensembles, including The Cleveland Orchestra, Cape Town Orchestra, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, Mexico’s Orquesta Filarmónica de Jalisco, and Beijing’s China National Symphony Orchestra, collaborating with such conductors as Michael Christie, Leslie B. Dunner, Arthur Fagen, Thomas Wilkins, and Victor Yampolsky. Myer has played recitals in such prominent venues as New York City’s Weill Recital Hall, Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center, and London’s Wigmore Hall.
