Michael to be Featured Poet at Performetry December 28, 2014

After two years of offering a wide variety of poets and musicians at The Performing Knowledge Project’s signature event, Performetry, Michael was at december’s event.whitman

Michael, of course, co-produces the event with Elizabeth Bruce, the artistic partner and wife, and he has performed a wide variety of classic poems at the event, most recently Edgar Allen Poe’s “Silence: a Fable”.  Elizabeth was featured at Performetry earlier in the year.

Michael considered the chance to offer a 30-minute set of his poems a real honor, and a challenge.  “Doing single poems at open mics around town is one thing,” Michael says, “but putting together a collection requires planning, and preparation.”  Michael treated the opportunity in the same way he does his classical presentations.  He was off book and ready to rock and roll.

Additionally, there was an early birthday celebration for Elizabeth.
