A native of Colorado, Rain Michael is a multi-instrumentalist and composer. Michael began taking piano lessons before the age of four and has since picked up over a dozen instruments, both classical and of foreign traditions. They have performed with jazz, wind, orchestral and marching ensembles, all of which have served to cultivate a passion for composition. Michael’s work has been performed by the Colorado Wind Ensemble as well as at Pendulum New Music concerts at CU Boulder. Michael is currently pursuing a BM in composition, a BA in psychology, a minor in linguistics and a certificate in cognitive science at CU Boulder, all of which influence the music they write.
