Friends Forever

"...The young singers have gorgeous, unaffected voices, and each performance comes straight from the heart" 




Moving On          

Michael sings in one solo number and three trios on this San Francisco Boys Chorus recording. The solo is the Benedictus from Haydn's "Little Organ" Mass and the three trios are from Mozart's The Magic Flute. The CD was recorded in 2001 immediately following the very successful SF Opera production of The Magic Flute and features the same trio of boys that sang the trios in the production.
