"Gorgeous" (Washington Post)

"Stunning" (Lawrence Journal-World)

"Eventful" (Star Tribune)

Reviewed as "gorgeous" (Washington Post) and "stunning" (Lawrence Journal-World), the music of Timothy C. Takach (b. 1978) is rapidly gaining momentum in the concert world. Applauded for his melodic lines and rich, intriguing harmonies, Takach has received a number of commissions from numerous organizations including the St. Olaf Choir, Cantus, Pavia Winds, the Bowling Green State University Men's Chorus, The Singers: Minnesota Choral Artists, the Cherry Creek High School Meistersingers, the New Mexico Gay Men's Chorus and the Western Michigan University Chorale. His compositions have been performed in concert halls across the United States, Canada, and Europe, heard on NPR, and recorded by various groups in North America.

The 2007 Texas All-State Choir and the 2009 Florida All-State Choir performed his piece "The Darkling Thrush," and his arrangement of "What Child is This" was featured on the 2007 Boston Pops holiday tour. Takach studied music composition with Timothy Mahr and Peter Hamlin at St. Olaf College, Northfield, MN, where he received a BA and graduated with honors.
