Alan Tavener Conductor of Cappella Nova
Even before he co-founded the professional choir Cappella Nova in 1982, Alan had begun his work in the amateur sector with the founding and direction of several student choirs. As Organist and Choirmaster of Jordanhill Parish Church in Glasgow, in 1996 he formed the Jordanhill Community Choir. Today, the membership of the amateur choirs with which he regularly works ranges from a predominantly student choir to a choir consisting largely of retired people, with all kinds of combinations in between, and including Strathclyde University Chamber Choir (the group for which James MacMillan is continuing to compose the Strathclyde Motets). These choirs represent a wide range of abilities and standards, including many novices to choral singing. In addition to his regular choral conducting commitments, he also undertakes a considerable amount of ad hoc work with other established choirs - ranging from children's choirs to chamber choirs - and with ad hoc choirs, ranging between community choirs and one-off choral workshops.

Alan Tavener
Alan Tavener read music at the University of Oxford where he was awarded the Heberden Organ Scholarship to Brasenose College. He studied organ with Nicholas Danby, gaining ARCM and ARCO diplomas, and conducting with Roderick Bryden and George Hurst. He is Director of Music at the University of Strathclyde, where he combines teaching and the promotion of a professional concert series with the direction of a wide range of student choirs, orchestras and ensembles, including Strathclyde University Chamber Choir which has toured many times in Europe, and has recently released its debut CD of Romantic Scottish partsongs: Sae fresh and fair.
In 1982 Alan founded Cappella Nova, the first fully professional vocal ensemble in Scotland to specialise in early and contemporary music. With them he has made eleven CDs, all world premiere recordings, and directed the premieres of more than 60 commissioned pieces including major works by Sir John Tavener, James MacMillan, Roxanna Panufnik and Gabriel Jackson. Full details are on the Cappella Nova page.
In 2008, in recognition of Alan's ground-breaking work in Scottish early choral music, he was invited to direct a master-class for postgraduate choral conductors at the Moscow Conservatoire.
As well as directing Cappella Nova on stage, Alan has a pivotal role in the Company's popular public workshop series and community choirs, including The Scottish Plainsong Choir which regularly appears as a 'backing group' with Canty and Cappella Nova. Alan is currently engaged in academic research into the impact of singing on society, both in terms of health benefits and social cohesion.
