Alan Tavener is a music graduate of the University of Oxford where he gained diplomas in organ performance and teaching. He is also an educational research graduate of the University of Strathclyde, where he focused on the social, educational and health benefits of singing. While at the University of Strathclyde, he worked as Director of Music with responsibility for teaching, promoting a professional concert series and directing a wide range of student choirs, orchestras and ensembles, including the Strathclyde University Chamber Choir. He continues to direct the Strathclyde University Chamber Choir and has recorded and toured with them worldwide many times.

Tavener leads Cappella Nova’s core work in performing, commissioning and recording, and spearheads its burgeoning education and outreach programme in collaboration with Strathclyde University’s Centre for Lifelong Learning. As Director of Music at Jordanhill Parish Church in Glasgow, he directs a community choir, an ecumenical liturgical choir and a children’s chorus, and has recorded an album of organ works. He also directs the Scottish Plainsong Choir, a community project which explores liturgical music in historical venues across Scotland.

In 2008 he directed a master class for postgraduate students of choral conducting/directing at the Moscow Conservatoire and has since been invited to return. Since 2008, he has led sessions for the Association of British Choral Directors and has served as part of the Making Music national strategic action group for music and wellbeing.
