Praised by Tim Smith, former music critic of the Baltimore Sun for his “sweet phrases” and by Steven Ledbetter of The Boston Music Intelligencer for his “lively gusto,” Timothy is a versatile performer who enjoys singing traditional opera, sacred music, contemporary works, and American Musical Theatre. He has performed with The Ohio Light Opera, the Boston University Opera Institute, Opera on the Rocks, Transgressive Theatre-Opera, Odyssey Opera, The Palace Theatre in New Hampshire and Seagle Music Colony among other companies. 


Timothy has been in several premieres including Joshua, an oratorio by Christopher LaRosa, Roscoe by Evan Mack and Rodman in North Korea by Sarah Hutchings and her cycle for tenor entitled, Supplicative.


Timothy's favorite stage roles include the title role in Britten’s Albert Herring, directed by Crystal Manich, the Unnamed Tenor in Glass’s Hydrogen Jukebox, directed by Emily Ranii and Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni directed by soprano, Helen Hassinger.

Mr. McGowan's Young-Artist debut as Peter in Babes in Arms with The Ohio Light Opera Company led him to be called “more than memorable” by the Daily Record. He since has returned to the company portraying roles such as Prinz Karl in the North American premiere of Emmerich Kálmán’s Der Teufelsreiter and William Fayre in Novello's Perchance to Dream. This winter, Timothy made his Chicago storefront-opera debut as the Priest and Fabrizio cover in Transgressive Theatre-Opera's virtual production of The Light in The Piazza where he returned in the spring to sing Don Curzio in Le Nozze di Figaro. Mr. McGowan recently made his role debut as Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni with Opera on the Rocks. 

Timothy holds a Master of Music degree in Voice Performance from the College of Fine Arts at Boston University where he studied with renowned soprano, Sharon Daniels. He currently resides in the Midwest with his husband, pianist Nicholas Pothier and their dog, Gabe.


Timothy now serves on the voice faculty at Millikin University and recently co-founded an innovative new company called Opera on the Rocks.
