Classical guitarist, conductor – and – composer Michael Poll has performed across North America, South America, and Europe. His debut guitar album, 7-String Bach, was called ‘masterful’ by Gramophone magazine, and Wholenote praised his ‘Warm, rich, and full tone’.

From 2014-2018 Poll served as Music Director of the Goodensemble Orchestra in London and in 2019 he was an intern assistant conductor for the critically acclaimed Salome at the Salzburg Festival.
