Robert Huw Morgan is the University Organist at Stanford University, a position he has held since 1999. A native of Wales, he received his BA and MA from Cambridge University and in 1989 became a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists. In 1999, he was awarded two doctorates in music from the University of Washington. His teachers have included Carole Terry, Nicolas Kynaston (repertoire) and Nigel Allcoat (improvisation). Dr. Morgan performs a wide range of repertoire, from the earliest sources to the present day. In 2005, he performed the complete organ works of Buxtehude and, during the academic year 2010-2011, the complete organ works of Bach.

In addition to his duties as University Organist, he also holds the positions of Lecturer in Music, Director of the Stanford University Singers, and Director of the Stanford Memorial Church Choir.
