Sir Willard White’s illustrious career has taken him to the most prestigious opera house and concert halls throughout the world over the past four decades.
Now you are invited to share an evening with Sir Willard as he reminisces about his life on stage and screen and sings some of the songs that have been important to him. From the Nat King Cole of his youth in Jamaica, through the first truly complete recording of Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess in 1976 to the songs that made the bass-baritone singer Paul Robeson famous in the 1920s and 1930s.
