Selected Performance Comments

“Welshman Ryan Morgan, doubling as Diener and George, has a remarkable stage presence and we will hear more of this young tenor.”
Jo Kerrigan “Theatre: Der Vampyr, Everyman, Cork”, Irish Examiner, June 25, 2014

“[Laura Nicorescu’s] arias with tenor Ryan Morgan included the famous La Bohème troika, and it received a deserved standing ovation.”

[Ryan] Morgan’s sweet tenor and Dubliner Rory Musgrave’s fruity baritone voices also did well. Their duet from Bizet’s Pearl Fishers was a highlight and it pleased the audience no end.”
Donal O’Riordan “Festival of Opera”, Sunday Business Post, July 24, 2011.

“Ryan Morgan charmed the audience … Ryan and Laura eventually stole the show with the final ‘suite’ of the afternoon. A trio of pieces from the first act of Puccini’s La Bohème (Che gelida manina; Mi chiamano Mimi; O soave fanciulla) enraptured the audience entirely. Nary a programme shuffled, no cough was heard, no chair scraped as the duo initially sang to each other, finally coming together and singing while looking out over the idyllic garden behind them. These two are certainly starlets to watch out for over the course of the next few years.”
“Opera at the Orangery”, Culch.ie, July 19th 2011 (http://www.culch.ie/2011/07/19/review-opera-at-the-orangery/)

“Everyone was astounded by your brilliant voice. People who heard you are still talking about it, about both your power and your lyricism as a singer. You bring honour to Wales and to an unbroken Welsh tradition. You will go from strength to well-deserved fame in the coming years, a brilliant new voice from a deep song tradition. …Again, Ryan, your voice is a wonder. We’ll be hearing a lot more of it in the years to come.”
Thomas McCarthy, (for a classical recital at Cork City Library, 2nd February 2009)

“Both Martin & I would like to say a big Thank You again to you for the fantastic singing at our wedding on the 10th – everyone was raving about your singing and I must say that you brought tears to my eyes on a number of occasions during the ceremony, just knew though that I couldn’t cry!!!!
It was a brilliant start to a brilliant day and you played a major part in this.
You were also so easy to deal with and had such a great knowledge of many songs & you even went away and learnt an Irish one for us which I know must have been difficult enough. Please also pass my thank you on to Mary who played wonderfully and she complimented you so well.”
Triona & Martin

“I wish to thank you most sincerely for making my wedding so special. Your performance is still being spoken about by my guests. Your singing on the day was absolutely delightful..one of my guests remarked that they would stand barefooted in the snow to listen to you. I hope you will continue to give such wonderful enjoyment to to listening audiences for the future. Thanks again and all the very best… “
Ann Leo

“Ryan sang at our July wedding in Cork and he was amazing. Singing “Panis Angelicus” as I walked up the aisle, his voice added to the drama of the day, and I felt goosebumps on my arms! He really blew everyone away with his performance. Beautiful voice, easy to deal with, and a great knowledge of music, Ryan really made the day special.”
Criona Martin

“Ryan Morgan. What a man! I can honestly say with my hand on my heart that Ryan made our wedding ceremony on August 25th better then we could have ever imagined. Walking up to Nella Fantasia I felt so magical and everyone has commented on how beautiful a singer he was. Since we returned from honeymoon the question that has been asked over and over again is “who was the amazing singer”. and amazing is an understatement. Ryan put so much work into our wedding as we picked some different music to what is normally used. He learnt songs and even had to make up the music to one as we couldnt get sheet music! He also sang at our drinks reception where some people did not want to leave and go to dinner. They wanted to listen to him all night. If you are booking a church singer for your wedding then I really feel you don’t need to look much further then here. An absolute gentleman, extremely talented and someone we will be forever thankful to.”
April & Peter

“Just to say thanks for all your hard work and for helping us make our day so special.”
Mark and Pamela, 10th October 2008

“Ryan sang at our wedding ceremony at Glounthaune Church and then at the reception at Acton’s Hotel in Kinsale in July 2008. The music at the church was lovely and made the ceremony; and everyone one enjoyed his performance at the reception. He was very entertaining and people kept asking me where I found him. I have no problem in recommending Ryan as he helped make our day so special.”
Miriam O’Sullivan

“Just to say thanks for all your hard work and for helping us make our day so special.”
Mark and Pamela

“I would highly recommend Ryan as a wedding singer! He gave everyone at our wedding goose bumps and we were all completely ‘wowed’ by his performance. My friends are still talking about him 3 years on! Ryan was so helpful during the preparations and gave great advice and recommendations on music to include. His knowledge of music is extensive, and you can even choose which versions of particular songs he’ll sing. He is very personable and easy to deal with. I’ve also heard him perform at a drinks reception, and he really get the crowd in a party mood with swing and party favourites.”
Caiomhe Kiely

“I can’t recommend Siobhan highly enough. She sang at our wedding in Fossa Co.Kerry along with a tenor Ryan whom she recommended and they both absolutely blew us away. So many of the guests commented on how much they enjoyed the ceremony and how they felt as if it was on a par as being in the National Concert Hall…”
