Michael’s performance highlights include: Luis in The Gondoliers, Richard Dauntless in Ruddigore, Kurt in Laugh out Loud, the tenor solos for the Mozart Requiem, Mozart’s Solemn Vespers and for Bach Cantata BWV180. Recently, Michael performed in his first public recital series with Elyane Laussade, performed as tenor soloist for the Oratorio de Noël by Camille Saint-Saëns with the Art of Sound orchestra and has travelled to Germany and New York where he worked with world-leading singing teachers and coaches.
