MICHAEL T. C. HEY is the son of Thomas and Christine Hey and a junior at Waukesha West
High School of Waukesha, Wisconsin. He began playing piano by ear at age nine and
began lessons at age ten. At age eleven, Charlotte Villwock, Music Director at St. William's
Catholic Church, Waukesha, recognized his talent and asked him to serve as the
accompanist for the adult choir; a position Michael gladly accepted. In May 2002, at age
12, Michael began organ studies with Sr. Mary Jane Wagner. Since September 2005, he
has been studying piano with Curtis Stotlar at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music.
In the past few years, Michael Hey has performed in many events, including organ and
piano concerts at churches, colleges, and other venues throughout southeast Wisconsin.
He has also participated in concerts of liturgical music affiliated with the Archdiocese of
Milwaukee and the National Association of Pastoral Musicians.
In June 2006, Michael received the Service Playing Certificate from the American Guild of
Organists and National Association of Pastoral Musicians. This past April, Michael took
second place in the American Guild of Organists' Twin Cities Chapter competition. He has
also performed in master classes with Heinrich Walther of Germany, Dr. Del Disselhorst of
the University of Iowa, Yoon-Mi Lim, 2005 first prize winner of NYACOP, fortepianist
Steven Lubin, Jennifer Pascual, music director of St. Patrick's cathedral, New York City, and

On a personal note; I have taken the opportunity to listen to Michael rehearse in the
church and as impressed as I am by Michael's technique -- and it is impressive (and he's
only 17!!) -- I am delighted by his sense of color and use of carefully-chosen
registrations. I think this is going to be a wonderful recital and I encourage you to attend if
you are in the area.
