Roderick Williams is one of the United Kingdom’s most sought-after baritones and is constantly in demand on the concert platform and in recital, encompassing a repertoire from the baroque to world premieres. In 2016, he won the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Singer of the year award.

Opera engagements have included major roles at leading opera houses worldwide, including the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, English National Opera,  Dutch National Opera, Dallas Opera, Opera North, Scottish Opera, Florida Grand Opera, the Bregenz Festival and Oper Köln.  He has been involved in many world premieres including, Lord Byron in the world premiere of Sally Beamish’s Monster, Alexander Knaifel’s Alice in Wonderland and Michel van der Aa’s After Life, and the title role in Robert Saxton’s The Wandering Jew with the BBC Symphony.

Pianist Yi-Heng Yang’s work includes collaborations on period instruments with visionary artists such as the Grammy award-winning tenor Karim Sulayman, in their acclaimed and timely album, “Where Only Stars Can Hear Us (Avie Records). She is also known for groundbreaking and provocative explorations into Romantic and Classical performance practice. She is on the faculty at The Juilliard School Preparatory and College Divisions, where she teaches piano, fortepiano, chamber music, keyboard skills and improvisation.
