Professor Peter Godfrey CBE

Professor Peter Godfrey was Music Director from 1994 to 2004 and Patron until his death in 2017.

Peter was 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 continued to sing in St. Michael's choir.

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