Albert LeDoux is in his ninth season as Artistic Director of the Bach Choir Houston, which celebrates its thirtieth anniversary with the 2011-2012 season. As principal conductor he has lead productions of Bach's St. John Passion, St. Matthew Passion, Christmas Oratorio, Magnificat, and other major works. He directs the Society's popular Bach Vespers series, featuring Bach cantatas on period instruments and choral repertoire ranging from Victoria through Handel, to Mendelssohn, Brahms, Reger and beyond.

Mr. LeDoux was born in Louisiana and received his undergraduate degree in oboe from Loyola University in New Orleans. He spent fifteen years in Germany as a professional chorister, soloist, and conductor with opera companies in Regensburg, Heidelberg and Dresden, and with numerous choral ensembles in southern Germany. In 1997, he returned to the United States and earned a doctorate in conducting from the University of South Carolina. Further studies have included a fellowship in orchestral conducting at the nationally recognized Conductors' Institute, opera conducting at its partner program at the Spoleto Festival, and baroque performance practice at Amherst Early Music Festival and the Tafelmusik Institute in Toronto. For two seasons, he was assistant conductor in charge of musical preparation for South Carolina Opera; he also conducted several productions for Opera at USC and led the university's early music ensemble. In addition to his duties with the Bach Society, he serves on the music staff at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Houston, and was recently interim Artistic Director of NOVA, New Orleans' professional chamber choir.
