Megan Stapleton Biography

MEGAN STAPLETON is regarded as “an artist of clarity, power, and much expressivity…” (Culture Map). Possessing a warm and agile voice that “shimmers like the moon” (The Boston Musical Intelligencer), Megan’s versatility stretches from early music to Mozart, contemporary classical, musical theater, and jazz. She most recently made her Lincoln Center debut as the soprano soloist in the New York City premiere of Dan Forrest’s new oratorio, Creation. As a baroque singer, she has been a featured soloist with Ars Lyrica, Mercury Orchestra, Houston’s Bach Society, Austin Troubadours, Lumedia Musicworks, and other chamber ensembles. She was the vocalist of the former Houston Baroque, with whom she performed three full seasons and released an album between 2014 and 2017.

Megan has premiered works by Gregory Spears and M.C. Warwick at Houston Grand Opera and has also performed extensively in various programs for children at HGO, including Opera To Go!, Storybook Opera, and First Songs. Regarded for her comedic timing and “lyrical physicality” (BroadwayWorld.com), Megan has performed three leading roles with Houston’s G&S Society, and the Galveston Symphony Orchestra has welcomed her as their soloist on multiple occasions. In 2023 she performed ‘Belle’ in Menken’s Beauty and the Beast with Bob Jones Artist Series and joined Boston Early Music Festival’s esteemed vocal chamber ensemble in Desmeret’s Circé and Francesca Caccini’s Alcina. This summer, she joins the professional roster of Varna International Musik as Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni. The 24-25 season will see her debuts with Greenville Symphony Orchestra and Symphony of Southeast Texas, while Bob Jones Artist Series welcomes her back to Rodeheaver next spring as Maria in The Sound of Music.

Dr. Stapleton currently serves as Assistant Professor of Voice Studies at Bob Jones University, where she teaches applied voice, opera workshop, musical theater workshop, vocal literature, and vocal pedagogy.
