$225 - $1000 per event
Described as a "real virtuoso", I am a regularly performing concert pianist as well as violinist and organist. My greatest strength is my accompanying ability for singers and other musicians, having played for years for Neapolitan, opera, and Broadway singers in restaurants. I am also regularly engaged by orchestras and touring shows as a violinist, and my vast conducting background in both symphonic and operatic genres, as well as my years of experience as an organist, make me well prepared to make your event, be it an elegant party, a wedding, or other occasion that much more special and enjoyable. I am also becoming something of a specialist for the "surprise" command performance at an anniversary dinner or wedding proposal, and enjoy the logistical challenge that such events present, so feel free to think outside-the-box when engaging me for your event.

I work with a variety of talented musicians, including singers and other string players; allow me to help create an even more special event than the one you imagined as I have worked with as few as one or as many as seven additional performers to create a spectacular occasion.

Michael was great about communicating before the event, and really devoted himself to playing our requests. He played for some 3 1/2 hours straight, moving from the violin to the piano (his first love and biggest wow) with ease. Many of our guests commented that Michael's playing elevated the tone the whole event. His presence did so much to make our party special and memorable, and we are very grateful.

Michael played the violin for our wedding ceremony. He was very accommodating from the beginning. He was willing to play any song at our wedding. The day of the wedding he met with the church's organist and practiced for about an hour together. The music during the ceremony was amazing! We'd definitely recommend him to anyone.

Michael is the BEST!!!! His rendition of " In The Garden" was phenomenal!!!! It was presented with such emotion and beauty that it left our congregation in awe... and wanting for more!!! Beyond being professional, Michael has a great personality- friendly, down- to- earth, warm and pleasant. Our members greeted and welcomed him into our church "family"... I would highly recommend Michael for any endeavors, and I look forward to working with him in the near future!
