St Peter's Singers
with Musical Director Jeremy Jepson
Thursday 11th May at 7.30
An evening of beautiful choral music exploring themes of nature, love, childhood and the Coronation
St Peter's Singers is a Peterborough based mixed chamber choir of about 25 voices. The choir was formed in the early 1970s by a group of Lay Clerks from the Cathedral Choir who wished to sing music other than the day-to-day cathedral repertoire. The choir will perform a mixed programme of sacred and secular music specially chosen to reflect the history and character of Thistleton Church. Featured composers include Ralph Vaughn Williams, Henry Purcell, John Rutter, John Bennet, Thomas Morley, Orlando Gibbons and Samuel Barber.
Jeremy Jepson studied singing at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama with Eric Ibler and Elizabeth Izatt before postgraduate studies at the Royal College of Music. He has performed with several eminent musicians and groups. As a choral singer, Jeremy has sung with the choirs of St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, St Mary's, Edinburgh, Carlisle Cathedral, Peterborough Cathedral, Gloucester Cathedral and Southwell Minster, and his work with these choirs has taken him to the USA, Norway, Germany, Sweden and France. He has sung on several commercial recordings and has appeared on ITV, BBC TV, Radio 3, and Radio 4. Jeremy maintains a busy schedule as a choral conductor, organist, singer and teacher. In additional to his work with St Peter's Singers, he directs Stamford Choral, is Director of Music at the Priory Church, Deeping St James, and is a deputy musician at Peterborough Cathedral.
