Michael Hall lives in Chicago and has performed and taught across Europe, Asia and the United States. Described by the New Music Connoisseur as “utterly masterful,” and Chamber Music Today as having “superb technique,” he recently presented to critical acclaim the North American premiere of the first viola concerto written by a Chinese composer, Chen Yi’s, Xian Shi, with the Chicago Composers Orchestra. Hall has been a featured performer at the Thailand International Composition Festival, Positano Chamber Music Festival in Italy, Vianden International Chamber Music Festival in Luxembourg and the Composer’s Concordance Series in New York City. Twice he has presented world premieres at International Viola Congresses at Minneapolis and Reykjavik, Iceland.

Compositions written for Michael Hall include two recently released commercial recordings: Narong Prangcharoen’s Antahkarana, and Mara Gibson’s Canopy, both received accolades from the American Record Guide, Fanfare Magazine and the NewMusic Box.

An avid chamber musician, Hall was a founding member of the Lake String Quartet, Ensemble-in-Residence at Yellowstone National Park. He teaches on the faculties of VanderCook College of Music and the Chicago Academy for the Arts, a Kennedy Center Award recipient.
