Currently on the Opera Course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, British bass William Thomas is fast making a name for himself as one of today’s most promising young singers.
Recipient of a number of major awards, he has recently performed Bartok’s Cantata Profana with the London Symphony Orchestra under François-Xavier Roth, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Orchestre national de Lyon under Alan Gilbert and has made his Wigmore Hall debut as part of Graham Johnson’s Songmakers’ Almanac. As a Jerwood Young Artist he sang the role of Nicholas in the UK premiere of Samuel Barber’s Vanessa at the Glyndebourne Festival.
Future concert engagements include his solo recital debut at Wigmore Hall, Messiah with the RTE Concert Orchestra and the Beethoven Symphony No. 9 in Paris with Les Siècles. William makes his Vienna State Opera debut in 2019/20 as Snug A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
