MICHAEL ORLAND is currently the Pianist, Arranger and Associate Musical Director for the hit FOX-TV series AMERICAN IDOL. We “discovered” Michael behind the scenes when Adam thanked him after his striking and memorable performance of “If I Can’t Have You” on the Top 7 episode.

Year after year, Michael has mentored and worked with the winners! Arranging their music is only part of what he does and this year what a wonderful outcome for us – a bevy of top-notch female singers who entertained us week after week. Sometimes we were moved to tears, others we were on our feet dancing.


We’ll play some of the winner songs and favourites of the top four stars! Join us to chat with Michael about his experiences working on AI this year.
