I'm Michael Calabris, a Northeast Ohio-based composer and liturgical musician. I earned my Bachelor of Arts (Music) from the University of Akron, and my Master of Music degrees (Music Composition, Organ Performance, and Harpsichord Performance) from Cleveland State University.
My compositional voice has been most significantly shaped by music of the ancient Mediterranean world, ancient Christian liturgical traditions, Jewish liturgical traditions (particularly the Ashkenazic tradition), sacred and secular music from the medieval and Renaissance eras, film and TV soundtracks, and popular music.
