Adiemus Worldwide Fan Club
- What is the Adiemus Worldwide Fan Club?
In early 1998, Suvi Kaikkonen, a longstanding fan of Karl Jenkins, Miriam
Stockley and Adiemus, started to interact with other fans at the now-legendary
Adiemus Unofficial Home Page. A bit later she had an idea to set up a fan club
for Adiemus. Suvi contacted Karl Jenkins Music Ltd. and asked them for their
support. On February 10, 1998 a phone call from KJM was the key that unlocked
the door, and the rest ... as they say ... is history!
- What does the Fan Club do?
As of January 2002, there are active members in the fan club from all over the
world (Mauritius, Canada, USA, Germany, Japan, Brunei and other territories)
including the founding member's Finland. So far there have not been any member
meetings, but the interaction between the members (and other fans) is, thanks
to modern communications methods, very active and lively.
Although we don't arrange any meetings among the members, there are a lot
of other kind of activities and things to be done:
- The fan club has been represented at some of the concerts by the members. When
someone knows of an upcoming Adiemus, Karl Jenkins or Miriam Stockley concert
the word shall start spreading to the other fans. Then, when someone attends
the event, if there is an artist meeting for the audience, the concert attender(s)
try to meet the artist(s). Our members will also be attempting to get backstage
- "Adiemus-The Fan Magazine": A Fan Club "newsletter" is published three times
a year and is sent to members via ordinary mail. The newsletter is written in
English and it is usually issued in April, August and December. Although Suvi
compiles most of the material for the magazines, other fans are encouraged to
send suggestions or contribute their own articles. Here are some examples
from the contents:
- Latest news relating to any project of Karl, Miriam or Adiemus and information
about upcoming concerts, recordings and other projects.
- In-depth backgrounds of some of the artists' projects
- Reprints of related articles from various other magazines
- Interviews with the artists.
The magazine is sent both to KJM and Miriam Stockley's manager, David Stopps, and
we understand that both Karl and Miriam have enjoyed reading them (in addition
to some other people involved in various Jenkins projects)!
- Christmas Projects: Since 1999, the Fan Club sponsored a holiday greeting
card project, where a big Christmas card was made and a bunch of smaller cards from
other fans around the world were attached inside. The whole thing was controlled and
run by e-mail, and the final result was sent to KJM office via ordinary mail. The
reception has been totally positive both years, and even those who are not Fan Club
