Timothy C. Takach

Reviewed as “gorgeous” (Washington Post) and “stunning” (Lawrence Journal-World), the music of Timothy C. Takach is rapidly gaining momentum in the concert world. Applauded for his melodic lines and rich, intriguing harmonies, Takach has received a number of commissions from various organizations including the St. Olaf Choir, Cantus, Pavia Winds, Flower Mound High School, the Bowling Green State University Men's Chorus, The Singers: Minnesota Choral Artists, the Cherry Creek High School Meistersingers, the New Mexico Gay Men’s Chorus and the Western Michigan University Chorale. His compositions have been heard on NPR and have been recorded by various groups in North America.

The 2007 Texas and the 2009 Florida All-State Choirs performed his piece “The Darkling Thrush,” and his arrangement of “What Child is This” was featured on the 2007 Boston Pops holiday tour. His arrangement of “Twas in the Moon of Wintertime” was included in a 2006 worldwide Christmas radio broadcast. Takach has received grants from the American Composers Forum and Meet the Composer, and yearly ASCAP awards since 2004.

Takach received a BA in Music Theory and Composition at St. Olaf College, Northfield, MN, where he graduated with honors. He lives in Minneapolis and sings with the professional male vocal ensemble, Cantus. For more information please visit
