Roderick Williams is one of this country’s most sought after baritones.

This long-established partnership has led to many appearances in the UK’s leading concert halls and festivals, as well as recordings and appearances on BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4.

Roddy is one of Europe’s most sought after baritones and will be singing at the Coronation of King Charles and Queen Camilla next month. He is also one of the twelve composers commissioned to write new music for the ceremony. In 2016 he won the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Singer of the year award.
