Opus 3 Artists Announces Expansion of Vocal Department

The artist management agency will integrate the Magnum Opus Artists company’s full roster of over 40 artists


On January 1, 2024, Opus 3 Artists will integrate the independent artist management firm Magnum Opus Artists’ (MOA) staff and artists into its vocal division.

Opus 3’s vocal roster includes Stephanie Blythe, Anthony Roth Costanzo, Christine Goerke, Brian Jagde, Christian Van Horn, and Francesca Zambello. Singers represented by MOA comprise Nicholas Brownlee, Joshua Guerrero, Leah Hawkins, Duke Kim, Philippe Sly, and Tamara Wilson.

Alongside the expansion, MOA founder Nathan Wentworth will be joining Opus 3 as its vocal department senior vice president, succeeding Caroline Woodfield, who will be transitioning into a consulting role in April 2024.

Additionally, MOA artist manager Trevor Newman will return to Opus 3 in the same position, while networks will continue to be developed with Opus 3’s sister company in London, Askonas Holt.

Opus 3 is part of an alliance led by the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, which purchased the agency in 2020. The conservatory acquired both Askonas Holt and the record label PENTATONE in 2022. 

“Caroline Woodfield has been integral to the success of Opus 3 for many years, and I am delighted that we are building on her legacy for the generation to come,” said Askonas Holt and Opus 3 CEO Donagh Collins

“I’m thrilled that Nathan and Trevor have accepted our invitation to join Opus 3 with all the artists on the Magnum Opus roster — they are respected, open-hearted artist managers and we welcome them to our family,” Collins added. “I will support them to ensure that all artists at Opus 3 will have the resources they need from our Alliance, enhancing their careers and pursuing the wonderful opportunities ahead.”

“We are honored to become a part of Opus 3 Artists and remain proud of the achievements of our incredible clients during a time of such significant change,” Wentworth expressed. “As we work to build on Caroline’s unparalleled legacy and foundation, we look forward to working with Liesl and Opus 3 to expand into new opportunities, reaching new audiences around the world.”
