A graduate of Harvard College, Michael Loo has long been known as one of New England’s most musically adventurous violinists.
He is at home in a wide range of repertories but has specialized in twentieth-century styles, working behind such diverse talents as Anthony Newley, Sergio Franchi, Julie Andrews, Tommy Tune, the Del Fuegos, Johnny Mathis, Connie Francis, Bobby Vinton, and Engelbert Humperdinck, meanwhile finding the time to appear in premieres of more than one hundred fifty solo, chamber, and orchestral works.
Mr. Loo has performed with the Esterhazy Baryton Trio, the Pacific Strings, and the Arcana and d’Oro string quartets. His trio with James Mosher and Eric Mazonson has achieved considerable critical approval.
He is currently concertmaster of the Assabet Valley Mastersingers, the Erevan Choral Society and Orchestra, and the Hillyer Festival, as well as the violist at North Shore Music Theatre.
Mr. Loo’s teachers were Genevieve Fritter, George Steiner, and Josephine Boudreaux. Chamber music coaches included Anastasios Tsicoulias, Louis Krasner, and Virginia Eskin.
