Hailed by Classical Guitar magazine as “one of the contemporary guitar’s most gifted stars,” Michael Nicolella is recognized as one of America's most innovative classical guitar virtuosos. He has received wide critical acclaim for his performances, recordings and compositions.

Nicolella blurs the lines between musical styles and disciplines. He is part of a growing trend in classical music to revitalize the role of the composer / performer. Known for his creative programming, he has introduced electric guitar into his "classical" programs and extended the repertoire and audience of his instrument not only with his own compositions and transcriptions, but also by premiering and commissioning works by some of today's most exciting emerging composers.

His latest album, of his arrangement of the Complete Bach Cello Suites was called “a monumental achievement” by Soundboard magazine. Michael has performed throughout North America, Europe and Japan, and is a frequent performer with the Seattle Symphony.

He is a graduate of Yale University, Berklee College of Music and the Accademia Chigiana in Siena, Italy and is on the faculty of Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle.
