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 is writing a string trio for Curtis on Tour, the global touring initiative of the Curtis Institute of Music. The new work will be performed in September 2020 in Philadelphia, Athens, London, Amsterdam, Berlin, and Munich.

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.
