MICHAEL DABROSKI is an American classical musician based in Havana, Cuba.
His original projects cultivate new audiences and artistic excellence for classical music in underserved rural and urban areas in the past 25 years.
He will open the restored 1923 historic mansion Espadero1923 in La Habana, Cuba, in 2023 to provide the most unique chamber music experience in the Western Hemisphere. He directs his 6th season of La Ruta de Mozart festival in Havana, Cuba, on 18 February 2023 in collaboration with 27 musicians from the renowned Lyceum Mozartiano de la Habana; performing the complete 24 string quartets by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in one day (see the Strad magazine May 2020, 130th year anniversary issue). He leads the new La Opera de Santa Clara in Cuba as Music Director. He produces Bach Helps [Enclaves of Beauty] since 2014 as a solo violinist performing original compositions and the Six Suites BWV 1007-1012 or Six Sonatas & Partitas BWV 1001-1006 by Johann Sebastian Bach to employ artistic expression as a means to resist violence and elevate the human spirit in Palestine (already fundraising over $41,000 USD in 30 concert locations including Cape Cod, New York City, Montreal, Berkeley, Seattle and Atlanta to benefit multiple organizations).
Other led projects include the year round Adirondack Ensemble serving the remote 3.5 million acre New York State Adirondack Park wilderness to perform 250 chamber music concerts in 32 communities during a 9 year period; the Burlington Ensemble to donate over $50,000 to 25 collaborating beneficiary organizations from concert ticket sales ($5 admission) and contracting 60 independent musicians routinely to perform the chamber music concerts; the Festival Mozart Caribe in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, directing chamber music, orchestral and in-school concert programs; and the Vermont Mozart Festival, to award competitive fellowships to the most talented young professional musicians who study and perform the music of Mozart showcased in 100 concerts for thousands of audiences while writing their own personal music project business plans under Dabroski.
Dabroski has been described by the Dean of Performance at Manhattan School of Music, Richard Adams, as "doing pioneering work ... carving a whole new road for people [students] to follow." A flourishing Dabroski music business model was described as "inspired genius" by the collaborative executive team at Vermont's historic Shelburne Farms. Senior United States Senator Patrick Leahy hand-signed a letter "PROUD OF YOU!" to Dabroski regarding Cuban music initiatives while noting "political differences should not prevent musicians and lovers of music from performing and listening to Mozart's masterpieces."
