About the performers:
Anton Belov, Baritone

The voice of Baritone Anton Belov has been called “rich and mellifluous” by the New York Times, while
the Philadelphia Inquirer described him as “an emerging star.” His recent appearance as the soloist
in Carmina Burana was described by Florida Weekly as captivating in every way, casting a mystical spell

over the audience. He earned praise from critics and audiences alike for his portrayals of Enrico (Lucia di
Lammermoor), Don Giovanni, Germont (La Traviata), Count di Luna (Il trovatore), Eugene Onegin,
Escamillo in Carmen and Figaro in Le nozze di Figaro. Dr. Belov performed throughout the United States
appearing with Boston Lyric Opera, Portland Opera, Opera Boston, Opera Delaware, Connecticut Grand
Opera, Tacoma Opera, Opera New Jersey, Eugene Opera, as well as Boston Baroque, Opera Orchestra of
New York, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (at Carnegie Hall), the California Symphony, The Oregon
Symphony, The Hartford Symphony Orchestra, Las Vegas Philharmonic, Rhode Island Philharmonic and
Colorado Symphony. Mr. Belov is the first-place winner of eight vocal competitions including the
George London Competition, Licia Albanese—Puccini Foundation International Competition, and
Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. As the winner of the Young Concert Artists International
Auditions, Mr. Belov has appeared with over forty recitals throughout the United States including such
venues as Carnegie Recital Hall and the Kennedy Center. A native of Moscow, Anton Belov holds a
Doctorate of Music degree from the Boston University, a Bachelor of Music Degree from The New
England Conservatory, an Artist’s Diploma and a Master of Music Degree from The Juilliard School. Dr.
Belov is an associate professor of music at Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon

Pianist Wenwen Du trained with Dan Zhaoyi at the Shenzhen Arts School and with Lee
Kum Sing at the Vancouver Academy of Music. She attended master courses at the
Oxford Lieder Festival, Britten-Pears Programme, and Franz Schubert Institut, where
master teachers included the pianists Julius Drake, Imogen Cooper, and Helmut
Deutsch, and the singers Elly Ameling, Ian Bostridge, and Wolfgang Holzmair.
Wenwen has given piano recitals in Europe, North America and Asia, most recently for
the Coast Recital Society. She performed with Nikki Chooi and Timothy Chooi for the
Coast Recital Society and Cecilian Chamber Series, with Caroline Goulding for the
Vancouver Recital Society, with Abigail Levis and Johannes Kammler for the Aldeburgh
Festival, and with Julia Bullock, Ryan McKinney, and stage director Yuval Sharon for the
LA Philharmonic.

She has recorded for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and appeared in live
radio broadcast at All Classical Portland.

Wenwen has frequently appeared in concert with Ian Bostridge. The Vancouver Sun
wrote, “Du and Bostridge are not just on the same page, they anticipate each other’s
every nuance in perfect synchronization.” Their recitals have included the Dallas
Opera’s Titus Recital Series, the Park Avenue Armory, and Spivey Hall in the USA, the
Vancouver Recital Society in Canada, and the Suseong Artpia and the Cheonan Arts
Center in South Korea.

Later this season, Wenwen will be the guest artistic coach at Tianjin Opera for the
premiere of Tang Kang Nian's opera, The Thunderstorm, based on the novel by Cao Yu.
