In the U.S., Mychal has presented solo guitar recitals on concert series throughout the country, including all six New England States.

Regionally, Mychal has performed concertos with the Vermont Symphony, the Cape Ann Symphony, the RI Philharmonic Community Orchestra, the Ocean State Chamber Orchestra and the Fall River Symphony. 

Local solo and ensemble performances include Blithewold Mansion and Gardens, the Lippit House Museum, the First Baptist Church in America, and the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, plus appearances on college concert series at Brown University, University of Rhode Island, and Rhode Island College.
