The soprano Miriam Meyer was born in the German city of Osterode am Harz. After graduating from high-school, she started medical school in Hanover. In addition to that, she soon started studying vocal arts at the Hanover University of Music and Drama with W. Reimer. In 1997, she transferred to the University of Music in Lübeck as a student of Ulf Bästlein, where in the spring of 2002 she received her diploma with distinction. She intensified her training by attending master classes by Renata Scotto, Irwin Gage, Charles Spencer, Kai Wessel, and Esther de Bros, to name but a few.

The soprano performed on the radio and on television. She gave numerous concerts, Lied recitals and oratorio performances throughout Germany and other European countries. She performed at the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival and at the International Lucerne Festival. At the Handel Festival in Halle in 2003, Miriam Meyer’s performance of the soprano solo in the "Messiah" oratorio with the Choeur des Musiciens du Louvre and the Lautten Compagney Berlin, conducted by Wolfgang Katschner, was a great success. In 2003/2004, she gave concerts with the Dresdner Kammerchor at the Alte Oper Frankfurt and at the Dresden Music Festival, featuring cantatas by J.S. Bach and G.F. Handel. With the NDR Choir, conducted by Hans-Christoph Rademann, Miriam Meyer gave solo performances in a series of concerts featuring works of Telemann. At the Herrenchiemsee Festival of 2004, she made her debut as Susanna in "The Marriage of Figaro", conducted by Enoch zu Guttenberg.

From 2002 to 2008, Miriam Meyer worked as a soloist at the Komische Oper Berlin. Among others, she sang the parts of Adele in "Die Fledermaus", Susanna in "The Marriage of Figaro", Musette in "La Bohème", Ännchen in "Der Freischütz", Mi in "The Land of Smiles", Marzelline in "Fidelio", Stasi in "Die Csárdàsfürstin", and Valencienne in "The Merry Widow". In 2004, guest performances with the Komische Oper Berlin led the young soprano to Hong Kong. After the birth of her son at the end of 2006, the soprano started cooperating very closely with Ton Koopman and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra.

Numerous broadcasting and CD productions document her work as a musical artist.
