Michael Hartigan is a pianist, composer, arranger, orchestrator, and producer, living in Burlington, Vermont. Growing up in Potsdam, New York, Michael began music lessons at the age of six, and was performing regularly with a variety of local musicians by age twelve. He studied piano performance and music theory at the Crane School of Music, and composing and arranging at Berklee College of Music, graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2006. He moved to Vermont in 2016 after periods of living in Boston and Chicago. A dynamic and versatile performer, Michael is highly active and sought after in Vermont’s music communities. While Jazz is a main focus of his playing, he is equally comfortable in the worlds of Pop/Rock, Blues, Latin, Country, and Classical music, and he is occasionally seen performing on violin, accordion, electric bass, or as a vocalist in addition to his work as a pianist.
In the piano trio setting, we focus on acknowledging and honoring the rich history and tradition of jazz music, while maintaining an adventurous spirit and being unafraid to see where the moment leads us. The musicians listen carefully to one another, and are quick to follow each other’s guidance as the music moves forward organically. The trio performs a mix of jazz standards and favorites as well as original compositions.
Note: This event is accessible to all. However, on-campus viewing of live-streamed events is open to NVU community members taking part in NVU’s testing program on the specific campus only. The NVU off-campus community and public may view the event via live-stream link.
