Festival Opera celebrates the life of Michael Morgan, our former Artistic Director, Maestro, collaborator, and champion. Michael died peacefully on August 20, 2021, at Oakland Kaiser where he had been admitted last week for an infection. He was 63. In May of this year, Michael underwent successful kidney transplant surgery at UCSF. He resumed conducting last month for the San Francisco Symphony and Bear Valley Music Festival.
