Story by Kate Chadwick

Michael Windish, Age 38

CEO, Windish Music & Productions

As the theater saying goes:the show must go on! For Michael Windish, the CEO of Windish Music & Productions, the show certainly does go on, both here at home in West Chester and in many venues located beyond the borders of Chester County.

As a music and entertainment producer, Windish brings world-class, top- notch musical acts to local West Chester venues, as well as to parks and attractions across the world, including Holland America Line, Hershey park, and Carnival Cruise Line.

The Harrisburg-Hershey native first landed in the Borough in 1999 to study music at West Chester University. He went on to tour nationally and internationally, performing and producing shows at up to 20 theme parks and cruise lines allover the world, before returning to West Chester as his home base.

Today, his business provides live shows and production services including casting, directing and teaching performers, as well as writing original music and show material, and bringing headlining acts to the public. Michael’s shows at Uptown! include a monthly dueling piano show and multiple touring acts, including The Glenn Miller Orchestra and the Celtic Tenors from Ireland.

Ever the troubadour, Windish spends his days traveling to major music cities for work, but makes sure to bring back what he’s learned to West Chester.
