“Williams has an enviable reputation, thanks to his handsome vocal quality,
open-minded approach to repertoire and warm, unaffected stage persona.”
— The Financial Times (London)
Baritone Roderick Williams has made a name for himself on both the opera and concert stage, singing a wide repertoire of rarely-heard Baroque gems to contemporary music of today. The burnished baritone makes his North American recital debut with a performance of Schubert’s final and one of the most enduring song collections, elucidating the songs with interspersed poetry and readings for a poignant and heartfelt evening that could only be felt in the perfectly intimate setting of the Board of Officers Room.
