Behiel/ Williams

SINGER: James Williams is a British baritone, who appears frequently across Europe and Asia, both on stage and in recital. His performances have been noted for their “considerable musical integrity” and “honey-toned” delivery (Christopher Field). Having studied in London with Eugene Asti and Joan Rodgers, Williams holds a strong passion for the songs of Franz Schubert and Hugo Wolf, while advocating the works of lesser-known English composers. 

Papageno, Don Giovanni and Schaunard fall within Williams’s operatic repertory, while his recent portrayal of Don Alfonso was deemed “suavely resonant” (Stage).

PIANIST: Appearing regularly in concert throughout Europe and North America, Canadian pianist, Meghan Behiel, has recently performed as a soloist with the Orchestre de Chambre de Saint-Paul and the Bern Symphony Orchestra, appearing live on Radio Swiss Classic. As a Lied pianist, Meghan studied with Rudolf Jansen and Elly Ameling at the Mountain View International Festival of Song and Chamber Music in Canada. Concert highlights include Lieder-Abende at the Tonhalle Zürich, Yehudi Menuhin Forum, Casino Bern and the Théâtre Granit de Belfort.
