Classical, Folk and Contemporary Summer Concert – ONLINE
June 13 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT| Free
Join us for a special online summer concert featuring Accordionist, Michael Bridge. This virtuosic program will feature a mix of classical, folk, and contemporary music.
Lauded as “a wizard of the accordion,” Michael Bridge is internationally renowned for his warm stage personality, stereotype-smashing versatility, and blazing virtuosity. Named one of CBC’s “30 Hot Classical Musicians Under 30”, he made his solo orchestral debut with the Boston Pops at 17 and gives over 100 concerts per year in Europe and the Americas. Encompassing the diversity of his live performances, his debut album, “Overture”, launched in 2018 and was named CBC Album of the Week.
More than a classical musician, Michael simply describes his repertoire as ‘concert music’ – encompassing baroque, classical, and contemporary works, along with a vast array of his own concert arrangements of folk and jazz music. Prolific in working with composers, Michael has given over 40 world premieres.
Michael’s first accordion was purchased at a garage sale when he was five. Two decades later, he is active in many facets of the concert music scene, boldly redefining the perception of his traditional instrument.
