Michael’s musical career extends from conductor, organist, pianist, and singer to arranger, author, and composer. He is grounded in the great canon of Western classical music and is delighted with Calvary’s strong legacy in the classical tradition. He is also very experienced in such other genres as gospel, jazz, folk, musical theater, and cabaret, and believes that there are many ways to connect with the spirit through music.
Michael takes seriously the “ministry” in “music ministry.” He has rich experience as a valued part of worship-planning teams. Moreover, he views himself as providing music that inspires people along their faith journeys. What he counts as most important is the quality of the music and its appropriateness to the worship theme.
