American countertenor, Logan Tanner, has been praised for his “striking musicality, clarity, and strong coloratura” (Opera Canada, 2018). Mr. Tanner has been an award recipient in several competitions, including first place in both the New York Classical Music Society International Competition, the Choralis Young Artist Competition, and most recently he was honored to be selected as the winner of the the American Prize - a national competition. Logan has been engaged as a leading soloist with the Austin Symphony Orchestra, North Carolina Baroque Orchestra, the Axelrod Performing Arts Center, the Philharmonic of Southern New Jersey, Choralis, Chorus Austin, New York Chamber Choir, the Henry Purcell Society of Boston, La Fiocco, the Arcadia Players, Monmouth Civic Chorus, the Westchester Oratorio Society, and the Sparkill Concert Series. In august 2019, Mr. Tanner will appear in concert alongside Cynthia Phelps, of the New York Philharmonic, and Martin Katz in Santa Barbara, California.
Equally comfortable in opera, Mr Tanner has performed on operatic stages throughout the United States and abroad. Recent roles have included Ruggiero with the Hawaii Performing Arts Festival. In his international opera debut, he received critical acclaim for his interpretation and performance of Oberon, King of the Fairies, in Benjamin Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream with Halifax Summer Opera Festival. An article in Opera Canada later praised Mr. Tanner as being a performer who “commanded the role of Oberon charmingly” (Opera Canada, 2018). This summer, Logan looks forward to attending The Music Academy of the West as a vocal fellow, where he will work with internationally renowned faculty artists, guest conductors, and soloists, including famed mezzo-soprano, Marylin Horne.
