Michael Lichtenauer

 
Bio:
Michael Lichtenauer is entering his fifteenth season with the Master Chorale, where he performs not only at Disney Concert Hall and The Hollywood Bowl with LAMC and The LA Phil, but at festivals around the world as a member of the LAMC’s staged production of Lagrime di San Pietro. Michael can also be heard on the nine recordings LAMC has released since 2005.
 
Before moving to LA in 2004 Michael spent seven years in San Francisco as a member of Chanticleer, performing 100 concerts a year at both domestic and international concert halls and festivals.  Highlights include recording with Dawn Upshaw at Skywalker Sound, touring with Frederica von Stade, performing at The Kennedy Center and winning two Grammy awards for two of the eleven albums he recorded while a member. One of the Grammy winning albums, Lamentations and Praises, was written for the members of the ensemble by John Tavener, who also attended the premier. 
 
While still in Kansas City, Michael spent five years performing with The Kansas City Chorale and sang on their first five recordings. He began singing at the age of eleven, holding his first two professional positions, as a member of the children’s chorus of the then Kansas City Philharmonic and as a chorister at Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral. Having sung ever since, Michael credits the exceptional teachers he had growing up as having helped him develop skills and technique that have resulted in over 1200 concerts and over forty studio and live recordings.
 
Along with concert work, Michael is in demand as a session singer in LA. He can be heard on over 150 movies, including soundtracks by such composers as John Williams, Danny Elfman and Michael Giacchino , as well as video games, TV shows and attractions throughout the Disney and Universal parks.
 
Michael lives in Pasadena.
