Will Timmons is currently a member of the United States Air Force Ceremonial Brass which performs around the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area. Ceremonies include funerals, promotions, retirements, state arrivals and other high-profile functions for the US Military.

Prior to joining the Ceremonial Brass, Will performed two seasons as a member of the New World Symphony Orchestra based in Miami Beach, Florida under artistic director Michael Tilson Thomas.

He has performed with the National Symphony Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Dayton Philharmonic, Columbus Symphony Orchestra, Artosphere Festival Orchestra, Florida Grand Opera Orchestra, South Carolina Philharmonic, and the US Army Field Band.

He has performed under the baton of Osmo Vänskä, Susanna Mälkki, Robert Spano, David Zinman, Ludovic Morlot, James Gaffigan, Alasdair Neale, Emil de Cou, Corrado Rovaris, Robert Berndhart, Mark Wigglesworth, Sir Neville Marriner, and John Adams.

As a chamber musician, he has performed with the Dallas Brass and the Barclay Brass. Will is the creator of Infinitude, a brass chamber group that performs outreach programs in high schools and middle schools . The mission of this chamber group is to show how music can be fulfilling and enjoyable for both the performers and the listeners through interactive performances in schools. These performances reach out to student audiences that have never experienced classical music in this way before.

He was an active participant in the Alessi Seminar 2010 in Fossano, Italy.

Outside of classical music, Will enjoys performing with many groups of all different genres. Most recently, he collaborated with “Agape” featuring Nadia Harris. Agape is a cutting-edge group whose sound can only be described as “Dub, Funk, Soul, Nu-jazz, Ska, Broken Beat, Afro Beat, Batucada, Electronic, Neo Soul, Latin Soul, Drum and Bass, Psychedelic, Classical, etc. all thrown into a solar-powered blender running on maximum and served hot in certified organic bio-degradable cups.”

Other experiences include the making of a film documentary through music by a group called “Where They Landed” in Cincinnati, OH. Where They Landed is a band that expresses their ideas using only music without lyrics.
