Our Organist-Choirmaster, Timothy L. Hall, earned the Bachelor of Music degree in Sacred Music and Organ Performance, and the Master of Music degree (with distinction) from Westminster Choir College, Princeton, New Jersey. At Westminster, he sang in the Westminster Symphonic Choir (under such notable conductors as Bernstein, Kubelik, Leinsdorf, Mehta, Muti and Flummerfelt), as well as Westminster Singers, a smaller ensemble focusing on chamber works and vocal jazz.
Tim has played organ, piano and celesta with Savannah Symphony Orchestra, Charleston Symphony Orchestra and Savannah Sinfonietta. He was Conductor of Savannah Symphony Chorus for nine seasons, and later was the founding Artistic Director of Savannah Choral Society (now Savannah Philharmonic) for three seasons. He has performed solo organ recitals in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, Florida, Arizona and in Great Britain.
During the summer of 2007, Tim studied organ at the Conservatoire Régionale de Paris under the auspices of the French Organ Music Seminar. He is active as choral conductor and clinician, adjudicator, and as vocal coach and accompanist. He is an active participant in The American Traditions Competition for Singers, serving on its Board of Directors. In previous years, he served as both accompanist and adjudicator in the preliminary and competitive rounds.
Prior to assuming his current position with Christ Church, he was Director of Music and Organist at Wesley Monumental United Methodist Church in Savannah, Georgia for twenty years. During his tenure at Wesley, his Wesley Chancel Choir toured England, Scotland, Austria and the Czech Republic, and was featured in two episodes of the BBC’s weekly series, “Songs of Praise,” singing hymns of Charles Wesley.
Tim is the father of two beautiful daughters, and recently celebrated the birth of his second grandchild.
