Queensland Conservatorium of Music
Timothy conducts the Young Conservatorium Concert Choir and the Conservatorium Chorus, based at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Southbank. The Concert Choir rehearses on Wednesday afternoons during term time and performs a mix of repertoire from art music to folk songs, from musical theatre tunes to jazz and pop classics. Timothy has been conducting this ensemble since 2007. The Conservatorium Chorus consists of all first year students at the Conservatorium, many of whom experience choral singing for the first time in this ensemble. The Conservatorium Chorus rehearses on Wednesdays from 1.30pm – 3.00pm in the Basil Jones Orchestral Hall.
From 2012 to 2015, Timothy was the co-director of the Gallipoli Choir, the official youth choir convened by the Australian Government for the annual ANZAC Day Dawn and Lone Pine services in Gallipoli, Turkey. These commemorative services honoured the service and sacrifice of Australian and New Zealand soldiers on the anniversary of the Gallipoli landings at ANZAC Cove in 1915. The choir was made up of current and recent past pupils of St Joseph’s College, Gregory Terrace and All Hallows’ School, Brisbane. Timothy’s co-director is Bernadette Debattista.
In August 2015, the Gallipoli Choir also performed in the world premiere of the Gallipoli Symphony at the historic Hagia Irene, a 4th century Byzantine church in Istanbul, Turkey. Conducted by Maestra Jessica Cottis, the symphony is a collaborative work featuring the music of 11 Australian, New Zealand and Turkish composers. The Australian premiere of the Gallipoli Symphony took place in the Concert Hall at the Queensland Performing Arts Complex on Tuesday 24 November 2015.
