Timothy Peters BMus (Hons) is a tenor and conductor. In both of these roles his main goal is to keep music accessible, exciting and original. He does this through frequent collaboration with relevant artists and constant research into direct and indirect phenomena that will enhance a musical experience.
As a Tenor, Timothy sings on a freelance basis mostly in and around London for recordings, concerts and church services. He has been described as a tenor leggiero more suited to bright and high repertoire, like that of Rossini and Donizetti. As a soloist, Timothy has been featured on BBC Radio 4 and regularly performs for choirs and orchestras around England including the Exon Singers, Hallam Choral Society and Hallam Sinfonia, Bakewell Choral Society and South Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra, the Chester Festival Chorus and Ensemble Deva, Kantos Chamber Choir and the Northern Ballet Sinfonia Orchestra, National Youth Chamber Choir of Great Britain and the San Francisco Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra. As well as these, he has made numerous performances as a recitalist.
Through his conducting, Timothy's principal aim is to transform music into the gravity that pulls a community together. In January 2023, Timothy started as the Music Director of Horsham Chamber Choir. He is also is the Music Director of Surrey's LGBTQIA+ Choir, Rainbow Choir. Throughout 2022 he was a Fellow of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain. An ongoing commitment sees Timothy as Artistic Director of Seeds for Development's project "Northern Uganda SINGS!" where he leads singing workshops as a way to bring disparate farming communities together, using the opportunity to discuss matters of health and education.
Timothy uses his broad range of musical experiences to approach music education from as many different angles as he finds accessible to his audience. He teaches composition, music production and DJ'ing at City of London Freemen's School. All of his composition students have attained full marks in this component of their GCSEs and A-Levels. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Timothy created dozens of hours of educational resources for local schools who have little to no music education. He also complied and produced virtual performances of them once a term.
Composing is also a keen interest of Timothy's. Choral music and music for young people is where his primary compositional output lies. His largest choral work, commissioned by Classical Sheffield, is called The Golden Hour which premiered in March 2019 at Sheffield Cathedral. Timothy has also co-written a children's rock opera with Nicholas Alexander called 'Bill Frog to the Rescue' which was premiered in November 2018 at Sheffield Cathedral, featuring 8-piece rock band and 200+ children.
Timmy Dillow is the pen name Timothy uses to release music and work as a music producer and DJ.
