Timothy Burris has performed widely in Europe and the US, including many appearances with world-renowned early music specialists and conductors.

His nine CD recordings include modern premieres of 18th-century ensemble works written for the Dresden court. His most recent solo CD, Ciaccona, includes his transcription for baroque lute of Bach’s work of that name from BWV 1004. Of the CD, Early Music America (Summer, 2013) said: “Burris, a well-seasoned performer, presents these works with a clean and clear technique that allows compositional brilliance to stand in the forefront.”

A Fulbright alumnus, Mr. Burris holds a soloist’s diploma from The Hague’s Royal Conservatory and a Ph.D. from Duke University. He was lute instructor at the Royal Flemish Conservatory of Music in Antwerp from 1990-96, and is currently on the faculty of Colby College. In addition to his work with St Mary Schola, Mr. Burris is a founding member of three ensembles: Music’s Quill, with tenor Timothy Neill Johnson; Ensalada, with Lydia Forbes, violin and Myles Jordan, violoncello piccolo; ScheckMate, with Raffael Scheck, ‘cello.
