Stanley Wilson

In the Opera News review of Ned Rorem’s “Our Town”, Joshua Rosenblum proclaims, “The full-of-character tenor Stanley Wilson is amusingly put-upon as Simon”. “This is a real gem” states Henry Fogel in Fanfare magazine, of Stanley Wilson’s CD, “Art Songs of the British Romantics”.

Mr. Wilson is equally at home singing opera, oratorio, concerts and recitals.
