Bass-baritone Tim Hill has received accolades for both his beautiful singing and visceral stagecraft. Of his New York City performance as Scarpia in Tosca, OperaNotes.com said, "Timothy Hill was the star of the day." Newark's The Star Ledger called his Enrico in Lucia di Lammermoor, "...most polished, with a fine burly baritone and a developed actor's sense of timing."

In August of 2011, Tim premiered A Live Oak Growing, written for him by rising composer, Clint Borzoni. Other recent engagements include his Carnegie Hall debut with The Collegiate Chorale singing selections from Bernstein’s A White House Cantata (as the Delegate from Virginia), and a return to the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts where he covered the role of Fra Melitone in Verdi’s masterpiece La Forza del Destino.

Tim has sung with the Santa Fe Opera, Utah Opera, Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts, Toledo Opera, Shreveport Opera, Connecticut Lyric Opera, Hudson Opera Theater, the New Jersey Association of Verismo Opera, and Théâtre d’Evreux (Evreux, France).

His roles include Sweeney in Sweeney Todd, Reverend Olin Blitch in Susannah, Il conte d’Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro, Scarpia and Sciarrone in Tosca, Paolo in Simone Boccanegra, Vodnik in Rusalka, Cinderella's Prince in Into the Woods, Melisso in Alcina, Enrico in Lucia di Lammermoor, Leonato in Beatrice and Benedict, Sergeante in Il barbiere di Siviglia, Mandarin in Turandot, Marcello in La bohème, Don Basilio in Paisiello's original and rarely performed Il barbiere di Siviglia, Guglielmo in Così fan tutte, Dandini in La Cenerentola, and Ivan in the world premiere of Donizetti's recently discovered Elisabeth.
