Michael Steinberger


Tenor Michael Steinberger was a featured soloist on  Clarion Choir’s new recording Passion Week (Maximilian Steinberg), and joined the choir for their tour to Moscow, St. Petersburg and London to give the Russian and British premieres. The recording was nominated for a Best Choral Performance Grammy award. Other recent recording credits include Four Quarters of Jerusalem, a recording by the Cathedral Choir of St. John the Divine under the direction of Kent Tritle, Requiem for the Innocent with the NY Virtuoso Singers, Bobby McFerrin’s VOCAbuLarieS, which received three Grammy nominations, and Pomerium’s Music for the Tudor Queens. Mr. Steinberger and Pomerium just completed work on their next recording, Musical Games, Puzzles, and Riddles of the Renaissance. Well known to New York area audiences, Mr. Steinberger’s appearances run the gamut from preeminent early music ensembles such as Waverly Consort, New York Collegium, ARTEK, and Pomerium to features in modern masterpieces like Arvo Pärt’s haunting Stabat Mater with Musica Sacra (a work he reprised at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine on Good Friday) and Kurt Weill’s Seven Deadly Sins with Audra McDonald and the New York Philharmonic. Other collaborations of note include Voices of Ascension, Hudson Shad, Anonymous 4, Lionheart, Amor Artis, Toby Twining Music, and The Western Wind Vocal Ensemble.
