"tenor Logan Webber was musically and dramatically ideal... Webber never confused naïveté with immaturity"
"Webber’s singing recalled that of Anthony Rolfe Johnson, the young tenor sharing his late counterpart’s faculty for projecting a warm, lyrical timbre with reserves of strength. Micah’s time on stage is brief, but Webber’s impact on this performance of Slow Dusk was lasting."
Joesph Newsome, VOIX DES ARTS
"a strong comedic actor in Logan Z. Webber, who makes a snappy appearance as Daniel Buchanan, lamenting in a Broadway-style number that pregnancy is harder on the husband than the wife."- Rebecca Evans, WHRO
“...other singers were audience favorites. Tenor Logan Webber as Jonathan, who had to leave his dying brother in no man's land, was frighteningly intense as he vowed vengeance- a heart breaking portrayal." - Roy C Dicks, American Record Guide
“a rich voice – powerful, yet tender and endearing.”
-Peter Perret, CVNC (Silent Night)
"The title role of Tito (...) was sung by the blond tenor Logan Webber, whose rich voice and rapid vibrato made his role as the "emperor who forgives" quite likeable. His last act aria ("Se all'impero Dei") was a brilliant coloratura work for tenor!"- Peter Perret CVNC (La Clemenza di Tito)
A Q&A with the Maryland Opera Studio
Interview with Jamie Allbritten at Piedmont Opera
"Whether intoning conversational recitative or careening fiorature, Webber allied handsome tones with unflagging commitment to animating Tito’s tribulations. The dramatic thrust of the Act Two trio with Sesto and Publio, ‘Quello di Tito è il volto,’ drew from him vocal acting of tremendous impact. " -Joseph Newsome, Voix des Arts
