With the support of S&R Evermay, Michael has created "Lakeshore Chamber Music," a new concert series in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. The series has a special focus on exploring Romanian chamber music alongside other traditional and contemporary works. The final concert of the inaugural 2021-22 season featured the award-winning Jasper String Quartet performing with Michael in July 2022. Earlier programs included a December 2021 duo recital with violinist Luosha Fang, followed by a trio concert with flutist Xuan Li and saxophonist Jonathan Wintringham in February 2022.

Soprano Laura Strickling and pianist Joy Schreier's album Confessions, which includes the debut recording of Three Teasdale Songs, received a 2022 Grammy Award nomination for Best Classical Solo Vocal Album. Michael's flute/piano duo, Beyond the Forest, also received its debut recording on Melodies of the Forest, an album released by flutist Paula Gudmundson and pianist Diana Shapiro earlier this year.

Conductor Francesco Lecce-Chong, the Eugene Symphony, and the Santa Rosa Symphony have jointly commissioned a large work for premiere during the ensembles' 2023-24 concert season. Read more about the project here.
