TIMOTHY CORLIS (b 1972 )
The music of Timothy Corlis is instilled by his background of community singing in the south-western Ontario (Canada) region of Kitchener-Waterloo. He holds a Master of Arts in Social and Political Thought from York University and a Masters of Music from the University of Toronto. Currently, he is completing a Doctorate of Musical Arts at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, as well as being a busy freelance composer, teacher and choral director. His music, described as “atmospherically striking” and “bursting with vigour and truth” is drawing a lot of attention in North America and is now being performed and broadcast by some of Canada’s most prominent artists and ensembles.
