About us

The Phoenix Consort, led by Artistic Director Adam Whitmore, are a UK-based vocal ensemble, specialising in choral music from polyphony of the Renaissance to contemporary compositions of the 21st Century. The group consists of young artists, currently or formerly students at Durham University, and emphasises the perpetuation of choral music’s influence among young people today.

Adam Whitmore

Artistic Director

Adam started the ensemble alongside his degree in Modern Languages at Durham University, and currently also conducts the Durham University Chamber Choir. More recently, he has been gaining professional singing and directing experience in Spain and Estonia. Adam also often works with the Rodolfus Foundation, which, much like the Phoenix Consort, aims to spread choral music’s influence among young people in the UK.

The Singers

We are very fortunate to have worked with some of the finest young singers from the North East, for whose commitment, we are eternally grateful!
