An Augusta, GA native, Timothy Miller is an active performer with both national and international credits. Concert performances include tenor soloist in Beethoven’s ninth symphony, Handel’s Messiah, and a concert version of excerpts from Richard Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier performed with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Perhaps most widely recognized for his stirring renditions of “God Bless America” during the seventh inning stretch of Atlanta Braves home games, Miller has extended his exposure well beyond the concert stage. Soloist for two Georgia Gubernatorial Inauguration Ceremonies, featured artist promos for Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, and featured artist in the December 2012 edition of The Atlantan Magazine “Patrons and Players” rounds out a growing list of memorable career highlights. In addition to being a sought after performer, Mr. Miller is also an Assistant Professor of Voice and Music at his alma mater Morehouse College.
Concessions will be available for purchase, and all proceeds from concession sales benefit future programming at Theatre Dublin.
