This Sunday, December 1st, William will be performing Handel’s Judas Maccabeus in the stunning Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, Orange County with the Pacific Symphony Orchestra, conducted by John Alexander. Other soloists will include William’s good friend, tenor Thomas Cooley and fellow Schwalbe and Partners artist, mezzo-soprano Meg Bragle.
