About this event

Artist Biography

Jeremy Huw Williams is a world-renowned Welsh baritone, who regularly undertakes concert tours of Europe and North America. In addition to being a first-class performing artist, he has an exceptional reputation as an educator, teaching vocal students in masterclasses, coaching choral musicians and conductors, and engaging the public in presentations and lectures. He is also a champion of female composers, regularly performing the works of Elizabeth Maconchy, Nicola LeFanu, Hilary Tann, Eleanor Alberga, Barbara Jazwinski, and Cecilia McDowall (for example, see his album, Women’s Voices,

Pianist Paula Fan has performed on five continents, recorded over 25 albums, and has broadcast for the BBC, NPR, Radio Television China, and international stations from Bosnia to Australia. One of the first recipients of the doctorate in collaborative piano from the University of Southern California, she has lectured on the subject worldwide. She was Regents Professor at the University of Arizona and has performed as principal keyboardist with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra for over 30 seasons. She has also served as visiting professor at the Eastman School of Music, and at conservatories throughout China.

In combination, Huw Williams and Fan (singer and accompanist) will benefit SOTA and the McMaster community by providing a showcase of artistic excellence and engaging with students in multiple educational ways; see below. They have a wealth of performance experience at the very highest level, which we think students within SOTA and beyond will find very stimulating and inspiring.
