Introducing Timothy Cooper - KCC's Composer in Residence

West Virginia native Timothy P. Cooper is a composer of choral and instrumental music. His works have received honors and performances from numerous organizations, including the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, the College Music Society, and numerous university and community groups. He received a bachelor’s degree in composition from West Virginia University and a master’s in composition from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, where he also received a graduate certificate in music theory pedagogy. Tim is currently working toward a D.M.A. in composition at The Hartt School, University of Hartford, for which his dissertation will be an extended setting of the Missa Pro Pace, or “Mass for Peace.” Tim works in the music publishing department of The Lorenz Corporation in Dayton, and lives nearby in Springboro with his wife Pam and daughter Larkin. He is a member of ASCAP and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia.


 Join the Kettering Children’s Choir as they celebrate the music and culture of Ireland and the British Isles through both song and dance! Dancers from the Celtic Academy of Irish Dance will be featured on the concert, as will the phenomenal Irish instrumental trio, Changeling. This performance is tied to the organization’s tour of Ireland in June of 2018, and will also feature two world premieres written by Timothy P. Cooper, the KCC’s 2017-2018 composer-in-residence. From the familiar Danny Boy to the lesser-known Paddy Works on the Railway, this concert will be fun for all ages.
