Mac R. Morgan BM 40

Mac Morgan, baritone, earned his Bachelor of Music degree in 1940 and the Artist Diploma in Voice two years later. While still a student at the Eastman School, he appeared many times as both soloist and a member of various ensembles, for already he was an accomplished artist. He was among the few who have been awarded the Artist Diploma in Voice during the entire history of the School.

After graduation Mac Morgan became a well known and much respected singer. He has not only given many solo recitals but has also sung with orchestras in both the United States and Canada under such conductors as Charles Munch, Erich Leinsdorf, and Seiji Ozawa. Among the England Opera Theater, the NBC Opera on television and on national tour, the Opera Company of Boston, and others. His television appearances have likewise been notable; he has lent his artistry to concerts aired through both the NBC and CBS networks.

An active teacher as well as performing artist, Mac Morgan has been associated with the New England Conservatory, the Boston University School for the Arts where he was Chairman of the Voice Department, and the Boston University Tanglewood Institute. Since 1982 he has been Lecturer in Voice at Emory University in Atlanta.

For his outstanding services to music through both performing and teaching, and with the hope that his influence will continue for years to come, the Eastman School of Music honors Mac Morgan with the Alumni Achievement Award.
