Tim Brooks is a composer, performer and music educator who has worked extensively over many years creating new music for young people, community groups and professional musicians alike – often all combined.
This output includes 7 community ‘operas’, music for street bands, music for theatre and dance productions, music for part of the 2012 Olympic celebrations and Hull City of Culture 2017, as well as many smaller scale pieces specifically for young ensembles. His most recent large-scale community project (produced by Hull-based production company, Back to Ours) was described as a 1940’s Punk-Pop Circus Opera, entitled Back to Bransholme and performed to an audience of several thousand over 4 nights in a car park in Hull.
He is no stranger to working with the Late Music team – over recent years having composed Are They Birds? specially commissioned for young voices and the Ebor Singers, and also several songs and chamber pieces commissioned for the Fairfax Ensemble.
