VERONICA I WILLIAMS
Veronica Williams is an up-and-coming mezzo-soprano known for her “thrilling instrument” and “overwhelming authority” on stage. Most recently in the 2018-2019 season, Ms. Williams was invited by Maestro Sebastian Lang Lessing to join the San Antonio Symphony as their first ever Singer-In-Residence. As a result, she captivated audiences at the Tobin Center for Performing Arts as the mezzo soloist in Leonard Bernstein’s ’Symphony I', Manuel De Falla’s ‘El Amor Brujo', and Sergei Prokofiev’s ‘Alexander Nevsky’. Ms. Williams received her Master of Music Degree from Boston’s New England Conservatory of Music, and her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Texas at Austin. Previous roles include Cornelia in Handel’s Giulio Cesare, the Mother in Menotti's Amahl and the Night Visitors, Baba Yaga in Jason Tremblay's Gretel! The Musical, Ott in Floyd’s Susannah, the titular role in Handel’s Rinaldo, Concepción in Ravel’s L’heure Espagnole, the Old Prioress in Poulenc’s Dialogues of the Carmelites, Hansel in Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel, and the title roles of Cesti’s Orontea and Eisler’s Die Mutter. Now based in Austin, Texas, Ms. Williams is a proud member of Local Opera Local Artists (LOLA), One Ounce Opera, and the Texas Concert Opera Collective, and has had the privilege of performing with the Austin Opera chorus for its past three seasons. When Veronica is not performing, she enjoys teaching and guiding talent in her growing and diverse voice studio.
