The Welsh baritone Jeremy Huw Williams studied at St John's College, Cambridge, at the National Opera Studio, and with April Cantelo.  He made his debut with WNO as Guglielmo (Così fan tutte) and has since appeared in more than sixty operatic roles.  Williams has given performances at major venues in North and South America, Australia, China, Hong Kong, and most European countries. Pianist Paula Fan has performed on five continents as soloist and chamber musician, recorded over twenty commercial albums, and has broadcast for the BBC, NPR, Radio Television China, and international stations from Bosnia to Australia.
