Singer-in-Residence: Roderick Williams
Roderick Williams is an opera singer, accomplished recital artist and composer. He works regularly with major British opera companies such as Opera North, Royal Opera House, Scottish Opera and more - he is especially well known for his Baritone Mozart roles. In addition, he tours internationally throughout the year regularly performing in Australia, America and Canada and Europe. This Guardian interview in anticipation of his performance at The Last Night of The Proms in 2014 reveals his joyful, personable character. As our Singer-in-Residence, Williams will be performing multiple concerts with us over the next two years, starting this May with a performance of Howard Skempton's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, as part of our annual May Festival. With his background as a teacher, he will also be contributing to our Learning & Participation programme.
