Encore Spring 2023

Welcome: Taylor Morris

Fond greetings to Taylor Morris, who in fall 2022 joined the Performing Arts Management team as a new artist manager. Morris has a BFA in music dance theatre with a minor in management and an MPA, both from BYU. After spending the last six years as a program administrator with BYU Continuing Education, he is excited to be working with student performing groups again. 

Morris has been passionate about music and dance from a young age. His first professional role was at the age of 10 in Pagliacci with the Houston Grand Opera. He was then heavily involved in choirs and musicals in Houston until he started attending BYU. After a year with the BYU Men’s Chorus, he transitioned to musical theater and solo work. He traveled and performed with the BYU Young Ambassadors for three years, spending two of them as the group’s president. 

Most widely known for his portrayal of John the Beloved in Rob Gardner’s Lamb of God: The Concert Film and subsequent live performances at the Eccles Theater, he also regularly appears onstage at the Hale Center Theater. 

At Performing Arts Management, Morris is currently serving as the artist manager for Chamber Orchestra, Living Legends, and Synthesis. He sees music as a universal language that helps build bridges of friendship across all borders. 

Morris and his wife, Bailee, live in Vineyard, Utah, and are the proud parents of four children.
