Laurence Williams is an international bass-baritone soloist and choral conductor. He trained at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama and graduated with distinction and a Concert Recital Diploma in 2017. He is widely praised for his lyrical tone and engaging communication of narrative.


Acclaimed for his eloquent singing and rich tone, his recent performance highlights include:

  • Bach’s Mass in B Minor with the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra

  • A live broadcast of Bach’s St Matthew Passion with Stephen Layton and the Auckland Philharmonia 

  • Adonis in Blow Venus and Adonis for Hampstead Garden Opera

  • Elijah solos for Islington Choral Society at Cadogan Hall

In his choral career, he has sung with such prominent ensembles as Polyphony, Gabrieli Consort and the Monteverdi Choir performing throughout Europe to sold out audiences.


As a conductor, he is the Music Director to three choirs, including a children’s choir in North London. He is passionate about introducing all voices to choral music and has extensive experience inspiring non-professional musicians. He loves how his work as a conductor helps inform his performing career and visa versa.
