Praised by The Oregonian for his “striking countertenor voice,” and for having a voice “like steel dipped in chocolate,” Tim Galloway is an alto countertenor and high tenor recognized for his interpretation of English Renaissance music and musical versatility. His past credits include alto solo work in Handel’s Messiah with Portland Baroque, Orff’s Carmina Burana, and the operatic roles of Pane in Cavalli’s La Calisto, the Witch from Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, Jenny Diver in John Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera and Bertha in a modernized production of Rossini’s Barber of Seville. He has also ventured into operatic film with Opera Theater Oregon. This summer he will be creating a principle role in Ethan Gans-Morse and Tiziana DelleRovere’s exciting new opera, The Canticle of the Black Madonna.
Tim is a rostered artist as both a countertenor/tenor and multi-instrumentalist (recorders and Renaissance winds) for Cirque du Soleil and performs regularly with Cappella Romana, Portland Baroque Orchestra, along several other ensembles along West Coast. Tim is a regular recording artist for OCP and has done voice-over work for film.
