The Huddersfield Bach Collegium is a long-term community choral/instrumental project writ large; the plan is to undertake possibly the first complete cycle of Bach cantatas in the North of England. It will consist of a rotating cohort of chorus members, instrumentalists and soloists drawn from the surrounding regions. Huddersfield has some beautiful churches and the performance locations will also rotate - thus bringing music, culture, heritage and community together in a very unusual and very special way.
ADM Productions has staged some successful 'Come-and-Sing' Events of our own. However, we are now offering the skills and expertise of our Artistic Director, Alexander Douglas, to all sorts of choral groups who are looking for an inspirational choral leader with a very wide-ranging set of skills to engage with their singers and their guests on such days of their own. As one of the most versatile choral directors and animateurs in the UK, whether your repertoire is sacred European music, songs from the shows , jazz standards in any number of parts or folk music from around the world, Alexander will excite, enthuse and drive you forward!
Workshops / Projects
Our team here at ADM Productions have quite considerable experience (individually and collectively) in project conception, design, management, artistic direction and delivery. We are motivated by the desire to share different types of music with people who might never otherwise experience it for themselves. Classsical music has a reputation for being somewhat inacessible to many people - we are playing our part in widening participation without compromising our desire to get the music right!
The Aletheian Ensemble (an early-music chamber orchestral ensemble) and Voces Laus Deo (a vocal consort) were both formed in 2011 as project-based ensembles for the express purpose of performing European sacred music. To date the Aletheian Ensemble has played more and less well-known works by Vivaldi, Bach, Mozart, Handel et al with Voces Laus Deo, the New World Voices and the Bradford Festival Choral Society on modern instruments, but usually with core groups of players who are particularly committed to early music and who also play period instruments.
