Tim Brown, following a distinguished career as Director of Music at Clare College, Cambridge, now enjoys a busy freelance life centred around the Zürcher Sing-Akademie, Zürich, and the professional choir, English Voices. He remains actively involved in the musical life of Cambridge University, where has been visiting Director of Chapel Music at Robinson College from 2010–2015.
He is much in demand as a guest conductor, and as chorus master for opera projects. In 2010 he prepared English Voices for two productions in the Aix-en-Provence Festival, Gluck's Alceste and Mozart's Don Giovanni, and in 2011 he assisted René Jacobs in a production of Handel's Belshazzar at the Théâtre du Capitole, Toulouse. In 2012 he was chorus master for the Hallwyl Opera production of Rossini’s Barber of Seville with members of the Zürcher Sing-Akademie.
In 2014 Tim Brown was chorus master (with English Voices) for the Aix-en-Provence festival productions of Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte (dir. Pablo Heras-Casado) and Händel’s Ariodante (dir. Andrea Marcon) as well as for the Bavarian State Opera production of L’Orfeo by Monteverdi, dir. Ivor Bolton (with singers of the Zürcher Sing-Akademie). In December 2014 he directed the Tonhalle Orchestra in a performance of Bach’s Weinachtsoratorium.
Workshops with amateur choirs remain a central part of his activities and 2015 sees him in the UK, Israel (Zimriya) and at Europa Cantat (Pécs).
