Michael began singing “late” in life: his freshman year of college. Since then, Michael has continued to make a name for himself as a singer with great artistry, facility, and passion. Having spent his entire adult life singing in various churches, the heart and soul of his repertoire is rooted in sacred music. From oratorio to art song, Michael’s ability to clearly deliver text with great expression has earned the respect of his peers and has moved and delighted his audiences both nationally and abroad.
As a singer, Michael has served as Tenor Section Leader at First Congregational United Church of Christ in downtown Portland as well as Assistant to the Minister of Music at Christ Church Episcopal Parish in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Michael also served as the Director of Music at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Oregon City, Oregon.
Michael’s singing has taken him to music festivals in the United States as well as Canada. He was part of a select group of singers to sing at former Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski’s inauguration and has sung for former Oregon Governor Barbara Roberts, former Washington Governor Christine Gregoire, and many other local and statewide officials.
Michael is experienced singing in a variety of vocal ensembles: men’s choruses, mixed choirs, chamber choirs, and quartets. Having led and conducted groups of all sizes, he has a keen ability to connect with singers of all ages and abilities while still demanding excellence and attention to musical nuance. While not accepting private voice students at this time, Michael is available to clinic groups of any size and ability level. Learn more at his Clinics page.
