Salmen/Reuter Organ Dedication

Timothy Howard is Organist/Music Director at Pasadena Presbyterian Church. In addition, he is Lecturer in Music at California State University, Northridge and head of the school’s organ program. A graduate, with honors, from the University of Southern California with a Doctor of Musical Arts degree, Dr. Howard also holds degrees from Westminster Choir College and Biola University.

Since his first professional church job at age 13, Dr. Howard has held a number of note-worthy positions. He has been organist at Pasadena Presbyterian Church (adding the music director duties last year). Prior to that, he was Associate Organist-Choirmaster of All Saints Church, Pasadena, for 13 years.

He has also been Artistic Director of the 65-voice Foothill Master Chorale and he served for some 15 years as Chorusmaster for the Los Angeles Music Theatre Company. In 1998 he made his operatic conducting debut with LAMTC, leading singers and the orchestra in Mozart’s Bastien and Bastienne and The Impresario.

As a organ recitalist and collaborative artist, he has played in the United States and abroad; recent years have brought appearances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Green Umbrella group, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus, the Los Angeles Master Chorale, and the choirs of Long Beach City College.

Dr. Howard has been active in the American Guild of Organists, having served as Dean, Sub-dean, Education Chair and in other roles for local chapters. He also served two terms as Regional Councillor, representing Region IX on the National Council. Most recently he was a teacher and recitalist at last Summer’s Pipe Organ Encounter in San Diego.

In 1999, Dr. Howard was musical advisor and recording artist for the world premiere of The Presentment at the Pasadena Playhouse. His recorded organ scores to accompany the silent films Nosferatu, From the Manger to the Cross, and The Life and Passion of Jesus Christ are widely available. This year he has arranged and led a recording of choral music for the HBO series Big Love.

Dr. Howard’s work as composer and arranger and performing collaborator can be heard on Christopher Parkening’s Simple Gifts (Angel Records), an album of sacred music for guitar; and his string and wind arrangements accompany pop/rock singer Brian Reeves on Never Looking Back (Briro Records). He also has several published compositions and arrangements to his credit.
