Acclaimed guitarist, conductor, and producer, Michael Poll, will join Holy Apostles on Pentecost Sunday, May 23rd, to perform two suites by J.S. Bach on the 7 string guitar.
Michael Poll has performed across North America, South America, and Europe, including in Barbican Hall, Wigmore Hall, and the National Theatre of Panama. His debut guitar album, 7-String Bach, was called ‘masterful’ by Gramophone magazine, and Wholenote praised his ‘Warm, rich, and full tone’. Since its release by Orchid Classics in April 2018, 7-String Bach has been streamed over 1 million times on Spotify and Apple Music, and was featured on the BBC and Classic FM.
A 2010 Fulbright and a 2012 Marshall Scholar, Poll holds a BA in music summa cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania and was a visiting student at the Curtis Institute of Music in conducting with Virginia Allen and solfège with Eric Sessler.
Due to social distancing guidelines, seats are extremely limited! But, the concert will also be aired on our Holy Apostle’s YouTube channel!
