NEW ALBUM! Released exclusively on CDBABY in August 2012, Tim's latest singing project features two rhapsodic works by Boston Composer Thomas Oboe Lee: A setting of Oscar Wilde's "De Profundis" and a rather humorous take on Gregory Corso's famous poem, "Marriage."

The album of a cappella lullabies, "All Through The Night," which Tim recorded twenty years ago with fellow singers Donn Ehrlich, Jim Mercado and Rick Kasper, continues to be enjoyed by listeners worldwide, and can be purchased as a Gift CD, or through one of many digital channels-- like Amazon, iTunes, Rhapsody, etc.

UPCOMING EVENTS

March 8 & 9, 2013: Tim is thrilled to once again take on the role of The Ferry Man in Benjamin Britten's chamber opera, "Curlew River." Fully staged and costumed, this production is part of Church of the Transfiguration's acclaimed music series, "Music at Little Church." He played this same role in 1994 and 1998, when he was with Chanticleer.

December 20 and 23, 2012: Tim will sing with Musica Sacra's small professional chorus in its annual presentation of Handel's "Messiah" at Carnegie Hall. Here's the buzz from Broadwayworld.com regarding this performance: While there are many occasions to hear Handel's Messiah in New York City each holiday season, Musica Sacra's presentations are the longest consecutive running performances by a fully professional chorus in the city's history. Its performances have been hailed as 'impressively transparent and vibrant' and with 'cleanly enunciated and radiant singing of the chorus' by The New York Times, and New York Magazine declared, 'I doubt if the city offers a better version of Messiah.' The featured soloists are soprano Kathryn Lewek, mezzo-soprano Kirsten Sollek, tenor Nicholas Phan, and bass Matthew Boehler. [Read more]

December 16, 2012: Tim joins the 12-man a cappella choir of Park East Synagogue for their annual Benefit Concert, featuring not only Rock-Star Cantor Yitzchak Meir Helfgot [search him on YouTube for an amazing treat!] but also Itzak Perlman!

2012: YEAR IN REVIEW

December 2012: On December 8, Tim and 11 other male singers joined the National Children's Chorus for a candle-lit evening of carols with special guest and Broadway star Lisa Vroman. What an impressive group of young singers! The Los Angeles-based group has a growing NYC division, and returns in March and June for two more NYC concerts. On December 9th, Tim had his first experience singing at Marble Collegiate's famed Advent Concert. Director Ken Dake wrote the following blog prior to it, which includes some recorded samples from the program.

October 2012: Tim once again had the privilege of singing with the Trinity Choir, directed by Julian Wachner at their Bach At One Series. He has sung a few of these, and whether or not he's singing with the group, it's a worthwhile (and FREE) concert.

September 2012: Tim joined the ranks of Marble Collegiate Church, best known for its association with Norman Vincent Peale, who was the presiding minister there for 50 years. Services are web-cast every Sunday from 11:00 am to 12:15 EST, in case you're interested in checking it out and quite possibly seeing Tim singing with the Sanctuary Choir!

August 2012: Tim sang at Bard College's annual Bard Music Festival. Each year the festival puts the focus on one composer and his or her contempories. Last summer featured Camille Saint-Saens.

July 2012: Tim flew out to Carmel, CA for another wonderful season with Carmel Bach Festival. He looks forward to returning in 2013 for his 10th Season!

June 2012: Tim was a featured soloist in the NYC premiere of C. Edward Hupton's "Requiem for the Victims of Genocide" at St. Mary's Cathedral, a.k.a. "Smoky Mary's" because of its reputation for using lots of incense!

April 2012: It was an amazing treat for Tim to sing with Pomerium for a concert of Easter music at The Cloisters to two sold-out audiences.

March 2012: Tim got to join the forces of Trinity Choir at Brooklyn Academy of Music with Mark Morris Dance Group, singing "Four Saints in Three Acts" and Beethoven's "Choral Fantasy." [Read the NY Times Review]

February 2012: Tim was invited back to Boston College to premiere Thomas Oboe Lee's setting of Gregory Corso's Marriage [see album information above!]. Tim had the honor of performing this piece with his favorite pianist Holly Chatham. A month later, he and Holly were in the studio recording the piece with engineer extraordinaire Kamilo Kratc.
