He has been a full-time musician based in Columbus, Ohio for many years. His diverse influences and uncanny musical intuition has made him a much sought-after player in a variety of formats.
In just a few months time, Morgan Treni has performed with some of the top names in the Columbus jazz scene including: Vaughn Wiester’s Famous Jazz Orchestra, Jim Maneri and now Derek DiCenzo. Morgan can be found singing a Capella jazz standards and originals from behind her piano at Roops Brothers in Delaware.
