Miriam is in demand as a singer in the Lower Mainland. She has been a principal member of the Laudate Singers since 1996. Miriam sang alto on the Laudate Singers' CD releases Christmas Journey and Songs Of Heaven And Earth, A Baroque Christmas and Celtic Journey as well as on the Elektra Women’s Choir's CD A Child Of Grace. In 2009, she toured Chiba, Japan with the Laudate Singers and Sinfonia. She sang background vocals for Rob Best's World Jive Big Band's CD Motsola in 1999. In 2002, she toured Germany, Austria and Italy with the Capilano College Singers. In August 2003, she sang alto in the Festival Vancouver Chorus Gala Opening concert featuring world renowned conductor Helmuth Rilling conducting Schubert's Mass in A Flat. During the Christmas season, she sings in and manages an a cappella vocal ensemble Caminando Carolers, her seasonal solo voice & piano act and with the Angelus Singers. She regularly sings with and collaborates with accomplished musicians such as pianists Joel de Stefano and Jocelyn Pritchard, flautist Tanya Kliefoth and clarinetist Ross Curran. 

Miriam is also a recording artist. Her experience in jazz, pop and classical genres has given her music a distinctive sound. She released her sophomore album Second Take in May 2005. In 1998 she recorded and produced her debut CD Subtexts featuring Jon Roper and Marc Rogers. All but three of the songs on the album were written by Miriam. Miriam's most recent CD is much different than the jazz of her debut album. Second Take appeals to a wide range of musical tastes but it especially appeals to fans of Sarah Harmer's and Beth Orton's modern takes on the female singer songwriter genre. Miriam has performed her unique style of music all over the Vancouver area as a solo voice and piano act as well as with her four piece band. With the addition of harmony vocalists to her live show, her music is perfect for intimate settings, concerts and festivals.
