Spring 2019 sees the release of two new recordings: Puck is performed by trumpeter Jesse Cook and pianist Edward Neeman on an album of new trumpet works slated for a summer 2019 release on the MSR Classics label, and the NYC-based sax ensemble New Thread Quartet recently produced its debut recording, which includes Test.

Commissioned in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Great Falls Symphony Orchestra, Michael's new work From the Northern Wilds received its premiere April 13, 2019 in Great Falls, Montana. See the "works" tab for a recorded excerpt from the premiere performance.

Conductor Francesco Lecce-Chong, the Eugene Symphony, and the Santa Rosa Symphony have jointly commissioned a large work for premiere during the ensembles' 2022/23 concert season. Read more about the project here.
