Hendrik Timmerman (Conductor)

Born: June 18, 1943 - The Netherlands

The Dutch conductor and organist, Hendrik Timmerman, studied from his sixth year piano and organ with Jac. Kort and Cor Kee respectively. He studied organ-UM school music, choir and orchestra conducting at the Academies of Music in Amsterdam and Hilversum. He also received his first degree qualifications as a Church Musician (Cantor-Organist).

Hendrik Timmerman has specialised in the authentic vocal performing practise of the Baroque, and as such he, with boy's and young men's voices, regularly performs all major vocal works of J.S. Bach, such as Matthäus Passion (BWV 244), Mass in B minor (BWV 232), motets and many cantatas.

Hendrik Timmerman frequently makes choir and organ concert trips throughout Europe and America, and is further active as: Cantor of the "Grote- of St. Laurenskerk" in Alkmaar, Leader of the Scola Cantorum of the "St. Laurenskerk", Conductor of the Noordhollands Jongenskoor, and Concert organist and composer.
