From The White House to the Royal Palace in Jordan; from the United Nations to the Parliament of World’s Religions in Australia; from performing for Sir George Martin of The Beatles to a performance in a Tibetan temple in the remote tip of Southern India; from the United States Capitol West Lawn with His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama to soloing at the Hollywood Bowl; from the high hills of Spoleto to the mountain peaks of Aspen; from collaborating with Nobel Peace Prize laureates to mentoring inner city youths; and from the historical Baptismal Site at Bethany-beyond-the-Jordan to the musical descent into Mammoth Cave – the largest cave in the world – Michael Fitzpatrick has directly shaped a global vision of tuning the planet.
Featured in the New York Times, the USA Today, on PBS’ The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer and National Public Radio’s All Things Considered, Fitzpatrick has performed around the world for the past 30 years, performing in concerts across Europe, the former Soviet Union, the Middle East, India, Australia, and numerous tours criss-crossing the United States and Canada. He has performed as cello soloist at The Hollywood Bowl, Lincoln Center, Town Hall, the Aspen Music Festival and most recently at the Spoleto Festival of Two Worlds’ 100 Year Anniversary Concert honoring its founder, Pulitzer Prize winner Gian Carlo Menotti. He was instrumental in bringing together Nobel Peace laureate His Holiness the Dalai Lama and United Nations Messenger of Peace Muhammad Ali, performing for their historic joining and blessing of the Kumbum Chamtse Ling Temple.
“Michael Fitzpatrick has the respect and friendship of Government leaders and members of the Performing Arts community
throughout the world. I find his interest in all endeavors – artistic and intellectual, combined with his enormous talent and
enthusiasm used by him to enhance his global commitment to using music to uplift humanity a source of great encouragement
to those of us engaged in reaching out to every race, creed and culture represented at the United Nation. As a close personal
friend of Maestro Pablo Casals, I can think of no more exemplary artist….”
