William G. Osmond is a Postgraduate research student wihin Music at the University of Southampton.

Originally a graduate in Political Sciences (University of Chile), William Osmond began to seriously study music (Piano, choir, harmony, ballet and contemporary dancing) in his college years. Always interested in the interdisciplinary connections that exist between the arts, he completed two additional bachelors (Paris-Marne-la-Vallée & Paris-Sorbonne University) and two Master's degrees (Paris-Sorbonne University).  His Master's in Musicology addressed the baritone's place in opera from Mozart to Wagner.  His second Master's (Art History) dealt with caricatures of musicians in the second half of the 19th century. He is currently a doctoral student in musicology at the University of Southampton, focusing on the reception of French opera outside of France in the 1830's and 1840's.  

William Osmond regularly gives conferences and lectures at the University of Cergy and the Université Libre of Saint-Germain-en-Laye. He also works as a licensed guide in various museums and cultural structures of France, offering his services in five languages.
