Professor Peter Godfrey: Patron

Professor Peter Godfrey CBE

Professor Peter Godfrey CBE

Professor Peter Godfrey was Music Director from 1994 to 2004, and the Kāpiti Chorale was very pleased when Peter agreed to become their Patron.

Peter has been involved with choral music both nationally and internationally and 'retired' to the Kāpiti Coast in 1992.  Within a few weeks, he was persuaded to start the Kāpiti Chamber Choir and some years later, took on the Kāpiti Chorale.  Later he was also involved with Waikanae's Anglican Church of St Michael as organist and conductor of their Evensong choir.

Retiring from the Kāpiti Chorale in 2004, he then handed over the Chamber Choir in 2006, but continues to sing in St. Michael's choir.

He feels most fortunate to have been able to continue his musical career for so long and thanks "the lovely singers on the Kāpiti Coast" for their enthusiastic and talented support.
