About
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!

She was absolutely stunned and loved it, Michael helped make the proposal very special which will stay with us for life. Great work and thank you again. Extremely professional, prompt at responding, engages with your ideas and helps you to create a movie in your head of how the event will go down. Very easy to deal with, turned up to the venue early to ensure everything was set and oh the music itself...was magical.

Michael did an excellent job playing at our wedding ceremony. He was flexible in providing and accepting feedback on the pieces played, and we received praise from our guests. We would definitely consider Michael for any future events, and highly recommend him.

We hired Michael to perform during the cocktail hour at our barn wedding in Hudson, NY (The Hill). He did a fantastic job, played the violin beautifully, and centered himself in the best location to targeted the largest audience. He was accommodating when it came to extending the desired contract to have Michael perform during our ceremony, which would take place 4 hours before the start of the cocktail party. He did a great job playing the organ and singing psalms during the ceremony. He was dressed very professionally and acted professionally. The only reason I took a 1/2 star off is because Michael didn't smile enough, but that's just my preference. Thank you!!

Micheal played during the dinner portion of our wedding reception, the guests loved him (I'm still getting raves). Though his repertoire is based in the classics, he took my requests and played Broadway tunes to to the delight of my groom a pnd myself. I look forward to booking him again one day, Thank you Micheal for making our day spectacular!
