Born in Port au Prince Haiti, Guy A. Michel grew up in a household surrounded by musicians and artists, so music has always been part of his DNA. At the age of 5, his dad wanted him to play the cello which he did not approve of at first until he saw the beauty of the instrument at a recital. On that day, he found his first love and has never looked back since.
What started as a fun and joyous experience turnewhethereran immense passion. He joined the Saint Trinite Music Program three years later, and became part of the premiere orchestra in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti "The Orchestre Philarmonique de Saint Trinite"
After his primary and secondary studies at the prestigious Nouveau College Bird, Guy A Michel emigrated to the U.S to further his musical studies at Florida International University where he received a bachelor's in Music Education.
Even though Guy Michel is classically trained, he believes that music goes beyond Bach and Beethoven, and even more than playing complex notes to showcase an individual's talent. It is a form of self expression; A vehicle in which to awaken and stimulate the imagination. He loves exploring new possibilities on the cello with a repertoire ranging from listening Easy Listening to Hip Hop and EDM. There s no limit to what can be accomplished on an instrument.
Guy Michel was recently featured on nivion on the show "Mira Quien Baila". He has also performed in Managua for the government of Nicaragua, in Dublin Ireland, in Haiti where he also conducted several music workshops, with Michel Martelly aka "Sweet Mickey" the former president of Haiti, Latin Grammy award producer Paul Hoyle, Latin sensations Camila, Marco Antonio Solis, and many more.
