Mexican American tenor Tim Gonzales has been lauded for his “bright, sweet, tenor voice” and for having an “emotionally and musically engaging” presence on stage. Most recently he was seen singing the tenor solos in Orff’s Carmina Burana with the Angeles Chorale which he has also performed to great acclaim with the Los Angeles Master Chorale in Disney Hall. Mr. Gonzales made his debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic in 2014 in its production of I Pagliacci, singing the role of Another Villager under the baton of Gustavo Dudamel at the Hollywood Bowl. Mr. Gonzales will return to the Phil in the world premier of Andriessen’s Theater of the World where he will perform the role of Posterity in the form of Descarte.
At home in concert as well as in opera, Mr. Gonzales has been the soloist in Verdi’s Requiem, Händel’s Messiah, Orff’s Carmina Burana, Beethoven’s 9th Symphony and Mass in C, Haydn’s Creation, Mozart’s Requiem and Mass in C Minor, the Evangelist in Bach’s St. Matthew Passion and St. John Passion, Vaughn Williams Five Mystical Songs, Britten’s War Requiem and many others.
A stalwart proponent of new music, Mr. Gonzales was recently heard in Nico Muhly’s The Elements of Style and Scott Worthington’s newly commissioned piece titled Noises with the Los Angeles based new music consort, wasteLAnd.
