Michael has received the S&R Foundation's Washington Award Alumni Grant in order to found "Lakeshore Chamber Music," a concert series beginning fall 2020 at the Hanifl Performing Arts Center in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. Alongside traditional classical and contemporary works, the series will have a special focus on exploring Romanian chamber music.

Michael performs with violinist/violist Luosha Fang in recital at the Evermay Estate in Washington, DC on February 19, 2020. The program includes Walimai, as well as works by composers Marc Mellits and Adrian Pop.

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.
