Professor Peter Godfrey CBE
The Kapiti 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 Kapiti Coast in 1992. Within a few weeks, he was persuaded to start the Kapiti Chamber Choir and some years later, took on the Kapiti Chorale.
Over the past few years he has become involved with Waikanae's Anglican Church of St Michael as organist and conductor of their Evensong choir.
Retiring from the Kapiti Chorale in 2004, he then handed over the Chamber Choir in 2006, but continues with his church commitments.
He feels most fortunate to have been able to continue his musical career for so long and thanks "the lovely singers on the Kapiti Coast" for their enthusiastic and talented support.
