Timothy Mount is Professor and Director of Choral Music at Stony Brook University where he teaches masters and doctoral students in conducting and was the first recipient of the Bentley Glass Great Teacher Award. He has recorded six CD's with the all-professional Vedantic Arts Ensemble in New York - a choral group which performs with a full sound, good intonation, sensitive musicianship, and good diction. Two of these recordings were aired on the popular radio show, The First Art.

For over 10 years, he conducted the professional chorus and orchestra at the San Luis Obispo Mozart Festival. He has guest conducted the Choral Society of the Hamptons, the New York Virtuoso Singers, the Rhode Island Civic Chorale and Orchestra, and the Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia. He has conducted most of the major choral works, including a recent performance of Britten's War Requiem with the Blacksburg Master Chorale and choirs from Virginia Tech and Roanoke College.

Mount has conducted three recordings in Moscow of large choral works by New York composer, John Schlenck. The first of these, with the Russian State Symphony Cinema Orchestra, was recently released on Albany Records and the other (Moscow State Radio and Television Orchestra) on the Composer's Recording Society label. All 3 recordings were with the professional Moscow New Choir.

Stony Brook University choirs under his direction have sung, by invitation, at the Utrecht Early Music Festival and festivals in Taiwan, Seoul, Quebec, Torrevieja and Cantonigros (Spain), and San Juan (Argentina). The Camerata Singers released their first professional CD on Koch Classics International in 2004 and were hailed by Fanfare magazine as "performances on a very high level precise, musical, and always in tune." Dr. Mount has conducted numerous high school honor choirs and church music festivals and has served as clinician in the U.S. and abroad. He has published articles concerning choral music and his video, Refine Your Conducting Technique , is distributed by Santa Barbara Music Publishing ("...a superb contribution to the profession..." The Choral Journal).
