Michael Unterman enjoys a busy career as a chamber musician, orchestral cellist, and concert producer. He is a core member of the self-directed string orchestra A Far Cry, serves as principal cellist of Boston Baroque, and is the Artistic Director of Five Boroughs Music Festival, a chamber music series in New York City. As a frequent curator of concert programs, his projects have been praised as “just the kind of imaginative artistic agenda that more groups should be prodded to try” (Boston Globe) and “gorgeous and remarkably unified” (Washington Post). Michael has also performed recently with Ensemble Caprice, the Knights, Portland Baroque Orchestra, Ruckus, and the Thirteen. A Vancouverite who has spent the better part of 20 years based in the Northeast US, he is particularly excited to be spending more time north of the border with Tafelmusik!
