Clinician Michael J. Glasgow

Michael J. Glasgow, who is likely either composing or working on a logic puzzle right now, is honored that you’re reading his biography: a thousand blessings on you and your house!  His work is legendary in church music, advertising, and supermarket-food-demonstrations (it was a dark time for him, but little old ladies still talk about his pioneer efforts with cutting-edge bagged salad).

Having retired from full-time church-music ministry after more than two decades, Michael’s excited to be “full-time freelance,” and offers his clientele a full-service experience, without the distractions of a church job or a school job.  (Yup, someone who actually answers the phone and returns e-mails: “what you need, when you need it.”).

Heralded for his “abundant melodic gift” (New York Concert Review), Michael is an award-winning composer of organ, handbell and choral works, and keeps busy with commissions (as well as pet projects that will never sell, but are fun to write).

Michael made his Carnegie Hall debut conducting his Requiem for chorus and orchestra in June 2017, and conducted its European premiere in Vienna in June 2019. More than 150 engagements also have brought him to three dozen states, as well as England, Hong Kong, Singapore, Canada, and a cruise ship in the Eastern Caribbean.

Upcoming engagements in 2022 include conducting the world premiere of his Concerto for Castings in Hong Kong, Vivaldi’s Gloria in Honolulu (May), and the world premiere of his own Gloria in June of 2022 at Carnegie Hall (June).

While he’ll never be on Facebook, Michael is a member of ACDA, American Composers Forum, ASCAP, FUMMWA, Handbell Musicians of America, Mensa, and several other professional organizations.  Visit, and subscribe to/follow @MichaelJGlasgow on YouTube and Twitter.
