Though classically trained on violin and piano since age five, Michael Lubben hails his Iowan roots with a love for American folk music. Self-taught on banjo since age 11, Michael has now recorded an E.P. of original songs as a member of The Lubben Brothers Band. A prolific composer since age 12, his compositions have been featured in several concert series such as Frontwave New Music Festivals and the Norton Museum's “Art after Dark” concert series. He has soloed with orchestras as a concert pianist, performing such pieces as George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue and Maurice Ravel's Concerto en Sol. Michael currently works as a pianist at Palm Beach Atlantic University, Bak Middle School of the Arts, and Faith Presbyterian Church. As a freelance musician he has performed violin and piano with many classical ensembles throughout South Florida, while as a member of the Lubben Brothers he has performed banjo, fiddle, and sung at such venues as the South Florida Fair, The Meyer Amphitheater, and the Flagler Museum. As an actor and musician, he will be performing this October in The Luck of Roaring Camp—the world premier musical Michael has co-wrote with his brothers, Joshua and Tom Lubben.
