From art-song to operatic repertoire, Morgan Manifacier's sensibility and purity of expression has lead him to sing both in America and abroad. Manifacier received his Bachelor's of Music from Holy Names University, and his Master's of Arts in Voice Performance from Long Island University. There, he notably appeared at Tenor Soloist with the LIU Post Chorus in Handel’s Messiah, and Beethoven’s Mass in C Major. Notable teachers include Lee Steward, Neal Harrelson, Robert C. White. He currently studies under the tutelage of Randall Scarlata at Stony Brook University, where he's pursuing his DMA in Opera Performance.
He made his operatic debut with NY based Opera company Amore Opera as Borsa in Rigoletto, and sang the role of Tircis in Lully’s Carnaval Mascarade with the Baroque Opera Workshop at Queens College. Earlier this season, he performed Buxtehude’s cantata Membra Jesu Nostri as Tenor Soloist with the Amherst Early Music Workshop, before debuting the role of Tamino in Mozart's Die Zauberflöte.
Especially connected to the French repertoire of the fin-de-siècle, Manifacier has lectured throughout New York and Connecticut universities on important French musical figures of the XIX and XX centuries, such as Gabriel Fauré and Nadia Boulanger.
