#10 on ZMR Top 100 Radio Airplay Chart!

They say lightning never strikes twice in the same spot. That has not been the case with my last two albums! Serenity II landed in the Top Ten on Zone Music Reporter April 2018 Top 100 Radio Airplay chart (Serenity I debuted at #8 in Sept. 2017). Much gratitude to everyone who has supported my music- especially the radio programmers from around the world who continue to play both Serenity I & Serenity II. It was wonderful to meet some of you in person last weekend at the ZMR 14th Annual Music Awards show in New Orleans! What an amazing weekend that was. Again- THANK YOU x 1,000,000!!!

Album of The Year?

How exciting! ‘SERENITY’ has qualified for nomination to both Album Of The Year and Best Instrumental Album- Acoustic for the 2017 ZMR Music Awards. My deepest gratitude to everyone who made this possible- especially the radio programmers. And to Emmett Chapman for inventing the coolest musical instrument ever. 😀

The Listening Room Phoenix Presents: A Virtuoso of the Chapman Stick, Michael Kollwitz, 7pm, March 10, 2018

Click here for location and directions!

This is going to be a night to remember! The Listening Room is a unique, intimate facility: a professional video and audio recording studio that just happens to seat 65. It’s kind of like being in my living room (minus all of Prince’s dog toys). This is my first major video shoot in 10 years and I’ll be playing some of the new material from my upcoming release ‘Serenity II – More Peaceful Music on the Chapman Stick’. I hope you’ll join us.

P.S. If you are unable to come in person I believe we will stream the concert live via Concert Window and/or Facebook. All you need is a computer screen and popcorn.
