Plans are announced and underway for a September 2014 USA Tour by award winning composer Tim Knight in advance of his choirs 3rd visit in 2015,
Amongst many senior music positions, Tim is Music and festivals officer for the National Association of choirs, a group that looks after over 6oo choirs, a widely travelled and popular guest conductor and worksop leader
As an ex chorister of York minster and having led UK Cathedral visits for over 25 years, Tim is the ideal workshop leader to provide insights into Anglican sacred music (especially by Tudor composers but also obviously his own!) and is looking for opportunities for lecturing, guest conducting and workshops with his and other English composers music whilst in the USA, one choir will be selected to premiere a new large scale sacred work.
Tim has been composer in residence before in a very fruitful relationship with Clarke University in Dubuque Iowa and although this visit is likely to be in collaboration with an Orchestra in Florida, Tim is also looking for opportunities in New York ( where his choir will be touring in 2015) and Chicago so that he may re visit his friends at Dubuque. Do get in touch if you feel you would liek to be included in Tims plans.
