Bella Voce - Conductor, Tim Marks
Formed in 2002, Bella Voce is the Elder Conservatorium of Music’s women’s choir. It was formed principally to build ensemble and musical skills while exploring a wide range of SSA and SSAA repertoire. Past performances by Bella Voce have included A Ceremony of Carols & Missa Brevis in D by Benjamin Britten and Songs for Female Voices & Harp by Brahms.
Tim graduated from the Elder Conservatorium of Music with a Graduate Diploma in Music, Performance (Viola) where he studied with Keith Crellin. He has played with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra. His interest in early music led him to become a principal player with Ensemble Esterhaza (Melbourne), New Holland Baroque (Adelaide), and the Australian Brandenburg Orchstra (Sydney).
He pursued his vocal studies under Robert Dawe and has been a soloist with many Adelaide choirs including the Festival Chorus and Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, Adelaide Philharmonia Chorus, Graduate Singers, Adelaide Harmony Choir and the University Choral Societies. He sang with CoOpera for several years and is currently a member of acclaimed vocal ensemble, Syntony, and the Adelaide Chamber Singers.
Tim is busy as a choral conductor and, in addition to Bella Voce, is the director In Unitate- an a capella vocal group. He was the State and then National Director of the Australia Youth Choir and has toured extensively overseas giving his debut performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London in 2005.
