Classical guitarist Michael Lucarelli has enthralled audiences throughout the U.S. for over 30 years. He’s known for his diverse programming and expressive style, tastefully blending classical, pop, jazz, Spanish, South American, as well as his original guitar compositions.

Aside from the concert stage, he’s entertained in such prestigious venues as The St. Regis Resort, Westin La Paloma, Canyon Ranch, Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, the historic Arizona Inn, and The Ritz Carlton, to name a few.  He’s an annual favorite at The Sundance Film Festival where he’s  entertained for industry notables such as Steven Spielberg, Dreamworks Animation, Arts & Entertainment, IBM, and Verizon, and was a featured performer at Mitt Romney’s Republican National Fundraiser during his 2012 presidential campaign.

Michael was a finalist in The Norman Sholin Guitar Competition, and has made numerous radio and television appearances including CBS’s Touched By An Angel. His music videos have earned him a respectable following on YouTube with over 20 million views and 35,000 subscribers, and twice received an Individual Artist grant from The National Endowment of the Arts.

Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Michael Lucarelli began his musical education on the electric guitar, but later discovered the acoustical guitar, and began his classical studies with Peruvian guitarist Ricardo Linares. He went on to receive his Bachelor of Muisc degree from The University of Utah, and in 1992, completed his Masters at The University of Arizona in guitar performance.

Aside from being a critically acclaimed guitar soloist, Michael’s 11 CDs continue to receive enthusiastic reviews from fans world-wide.
