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.

‘Serenity’ now #8 on ZMR New Age World radio chart!

So exciting! ‘Serenity’ moved up from #42 in August to #8 in September on the ZMR New Age World Top 100 radio chart!

I also just learned that an Australian magazine “Conscious Living” is including a great review of the album in their Spring 2018 issue. Woo hoo! What a thrill. Thanks to all!!!🤣

Review of “SERENITY- Peaceful Music On The Chapman Stick”

Just received a great review of the new album “SERENITY- Peaceful Music On The Chapman Stick“. It was written by Dick Metcalf of Contemporary Fusion Reviews and he has some very nice things to say about my music! You’ll find the complete review here:

“As you absorb songs of pure beauty like ‘Greatest Possible Gift‘, you will hear why I’m so enchanted by his work… this album will be playing for days, months & years to come – & it certainly will get a permanent spot on my iPhone!” – Dick Metcalf, Contemporary Fusion Reviews

It really helps to know that this new musical direction is being welcomed by listeners. There is just so much noise in the world today that I think that everyone needs a little more serenity so this was my way of helping to create some.

I hope you’ll enjoy the new music!
