As a young girl, Margaret Evans began her singing career in a children’s choir at Saint Alban’s Parish in Washington, DC, and studied voice while in boarding school at Tudor Hall School, Banbury, England. She received her BA from Trinity College, Hartford. While attending Trinity, she studied voice at the University of Hartford’s Hartt School of Music. Presently, Margaret is the soprano section leader and a Cantor at Sacred Heart Parish in Suffield, CT. Several years ago, Margaret founded Trio Cantabile, which consisted of voice, harp and piano. The Trio debuted the Music at the Red Door Series at Saint John’s Episcopal Church in West Hartford. She also performs as a soloist at her summertime church, Casco Village Church, United Church of Christ in Casco, Maine. Concert venues include The Town and County Club in Hartford, CT, Wood Memorial Library in South Windsor, CT and The New Britain Museum of Art, New Britain, CT.

Margaret has four grown children, all of whom are involved in music in some capacity, and lives in West Hartford with her cat, Emma.
Cleveland Alexander Williams – Baritone Singing praises of his beautiful archipelago home spans three decades of a professional, international, marketing career in our Ministry of Tourism. Dr. William’s other life’s work is defined by real singing, a vocal vocation. He strives to bring performance and fellow voices to perfection. This is his deeper satisfaction; his Rush. Perhaps a highlight of an astonishing journey so far was producing and directing Scott Joplin’s Opera, Treemonisha, July 2009, to celebrate 36 years of Bahamian Independence. Indeed a public outcry was raised with demands for more of the same. The Nassau City Opera Company was so born. In the preparation of Porgy and Bess, it became obvious, that Cleveland could easily perform the entire opera and probably other works of the genre, alone as one-man, singing each role in each voice range, male or female. Cleveland confidently produced and artistically directed Nassau City Opera Company in its Inaugural Performance of George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess in July 2012 on the occasion of the 38th Anniversary of Bahamian Independence. Notable performances: “Interpreti Veneziani” Concerts with the Italian Chamber Orchestra throughout Italy, Norway, Finland, Sweden and in Nassau, Bahamas. Operatic Roles: “Luddud” & “Ned” (Treemonisha), Houston Grand Opera and Battersea Art Centre, London. “Sammy Swain” Command performance for HM Queen Elizabeth II, Opera by E. Clement Bethel. “Baron Douphol” (La Traviata, Verdi), Guildford Opera Company, UK “Amonasaro” (Aida, Verdi), Sevenoaks Opera Company, UK “Morales” (Carmen, Bizet), Surrey Opera Company, UK “Tonio” (I Pagliacci , Leoncavallo), Riverside Opera Company, Richmond, UK. Operas Produced & Directed: “ Treemonisha” Scott Joplin’s Opera on the occasion of 38th Anniversary of Bahamian Independence. “Porgy” Nassau City Opera Company’s Inaugural Performance, Porgy & Bess-2011. Concerts Produced: Story of The Spirituals, The Passion of The Christ Requiems Produced: Giuseppi Verdi’s Requiem, Mozart Requiem.
