Tim Moher Eminent saxophonist Tim Moher was born into a musical family, along with his older brother, Peter, an accomplished pianist.
In high school, Tim’s music teacher brought the class on a trip to hear Maynard Ferguson’s Big Band in Toronto. This experience ignited Tim’s passion for jazz.
He went on to receive an Honours Bachelor of Music, B.A. and B.Ed from The University of Western Ontario.
Tim has been featured as a jazz, classical, and ragtime soloist with many musical groups including, Orchestra London, The Royal City Saxophone Quartet, The Wellington Winds, and The Band of the Ceremonial Guard in Ottawa. Additionally, Tim is the newest member of the Kitchener-Waterloo band, the ‘KW Big Band Theory’.
Locally, Tim managed entertainment and continues to perform at The Food and Drink Show, along with performing at wedding ceremonies, receptions, and corporate events.
With a greater focus on creativity and composition in the past two years, he produced his inaugural CD in 2013 alongside Rick Hutt of the Cedartree Recording Studio that featured all original music.
After 25 years of performing fresh and inventive sounds across the region, Tim aspires to become a full time performer and writer. Presently, an itinerant music teacher for the Waterloo Catholic District School Board, he hopes to inspire young and aspiring musicians to flourish.
You can hear Tim’s unique and vibrant sound in the release of his second CD titled, ‘Forest Hill – Autumn’, at The Conrad Centre for the performing arts alongside the band ‘KW Big Band Theory’ in November. All net proceeds from this concert will be donated to the MS Society.
