Michael began singing at age eight when he joined the Australian Boys Choral Institute, an organisation he continued to be involved with for fifteen years. Progressing through the institute as a treble, most recently he was singing with their all male a cappella ensemble, The Vocal Consort. As a chorister, Michael has sung with numerous choirs including the National Youth Choir of Australia, the Adelaide Chamber Singers, and The Consort of Melbourne.
In 2013, Michael graduated from the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music with a Bachelor of Music, majoring in classical voice. During his time at the Conservatorium, Michael’s vocal quartet was awarded the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music Chamber Music Prize, and more recently came second in the state-wide 3MBS radio competition, ‘The Talent’.
Michael has performed as part of the Victorian Youth Opera program; in their 2011 workshop of Assembly, the 2012 production of The Play of Daniel, and in the World Premiere of The Grumpiest Boy in the World. With the Victorian Opera Chorus Michael has performed in the 2012 and 2013 Gala concerts, as well as main stage productions of Nixon in China and La Traviata. In 2015, Michael performed in Victorian Opera’s ANZAC centenary production, Remembrance, touring Melbourne and regional Victoria.
Michael joined The TEN Tenors in 2014, and has travelled through North Queensland, Europe, South Korea and the United States of America. He is particularly pumped to be doing his first full Aussie tour and is looking forward to sharing this brand new show with you.
