In addition to conducting the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, Dr. Tim Seelig keeps a busy schedule with appearances around the world. He is the Conductor Emeritus of the Turtle Creek Chorale in Dallas, Texas, which he conducted for 20 years. Dr. Seelig holds four degrees, including the Doctor of Musical Arts degree and the Diploma from the prestigious Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria. He has seven books and DVDs on choral technique. He has conducted at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center annually since 1991. As a singer, he performed world premieres by John Corigliano, Conrad Susa and Peter Schickele (P.D.Q. Bach) in addition to European operatic debut as the lead baritone in the Swiss National Opera and solo recital debut at Carnegie Hall. He holds the Guinness Book Of World Records for conducting the Longest Choral Concert in history (20+ hours) and carried the Olympic torch. His recordings have reached the Billboard Top Ten classical chart and, most recently, the Independent Music Award for I Am Harvey Milk. He has also been featured in two PBS documentaries, the first of which one the national Emmy for Best Documentary. Known for his enthusiasm and sense of humor, Grammy Magazine says, “Dr. Seelig takes eclecticism to new heights.” Fanfare Magazine writes “He raises singers from the ranks of amateur to receiving wide recognition for excellent performances of appealing, fresh repertoire.” The New York Times calls Seelig an “expressive performer,” and the Fort Worth Star Telegram quips, “Seelig slices a thick cut of ham.” He is married to Dan England and is the proud grandfather of the amazing Clara Skye.
