American tenor Wesley Morgan has been praised by conductors, stage directors and audiences for his "ringing tenor" and "gift for suave phrasing"(Greenville News), and "leaving the audience swooning" with his "flawless performance" as described by The Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Mr. Morgan made his international debut this December as the tenor soloist in Messiah for the Windsor Symphony Orchestra in Ontario. The rising tenor is delighted to return to Atlanta Opera where as a Studio Artist he starred in the company's touring shows as Frederic in Pirates of Penzance, and appeared on the mainstage as Mayor in Cold Sassy Tree, and 1st Priest in Die Zauberflöte. For St. Petersburg Opera's Emerging Artist program, Wesley has sung the roles of Count Almaviva in Il Babriere di Siviglia, and Nemorino in l'Elisir d'Amore. Other roles include Tamino in Die Zauberflöte (Jubal's Lyre Opera), Rinuccio in Gianni Schicchi (Capitol City Opera), Nanki Poo in The Mikado (Atlanta Lyric Theatre & Greenville Light Opera Works), the title role in Candide (Georgia State University Opera), and Rodolfo in La Bohéme for El Paso Opera, where he returned this fall to sing Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus. Last summer Wesley sang the role of Tamino in Die Zauberflöte as a young artist with Ash Lawn Opera, and this spring will make his West Coast debut as Cassio in Otello with the Puget Sound Concert Opera, Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus for Vashon Opera, and The Son in Les Mamelles de Tiresias with Vespertine Opera Theater.
