Huw Llywelyn studied at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and then at the Royal College of Music’s Benjamin Britten International Opera School.
Prior to joining WNO Huw was a singing teacher at Bangor University, Coleg Menai and at the William Mathias Music Centre. He also worked extensively for WNO’s Youth & Community department giving concerts, leading schools workshops, Come & Sing events and was the voice specialist for Youth Opera in north Wales. He was also a team captain for Only Boys Aloud.
Having been a member of the Chorus previously, Huw’s personal highlight is being back with WNO: ‘It’s a joy to be back. Every day has its own highlight. I’m very fortunate to be doing such a unique job with such talented colleagues and friends.’
In his spare time Huw enjoys running and cycling. He enjoys listening to many genres of music as well as opera, such as rock and metal, and is a keen electric guitarist.
