Biography

Peter Siepmann PhD FRCO LRSM first came to St Peter's in 2002 as Music Associate, and has been Organist & Director of Music since 2007. 

Alongside his church work, Dr Siepmann is Head of Academic Music at Repton School, an examiner for the ABRSM and an organ tutor at the University of Nottingham.  He is Artistic Director of the Mansfield Choral Society, where recent projects include Handel Messiah and Mozart Requiem (the latter with the Darwin Ensemble Chamber Orchestra and a choir of over 200 singers), and maintains relationships with a number of other local ensembles as an accompanist, guest conductor and continuo player.  He sits on the regional committee of the Royal Schools of Church Music, for whom he regularly leads workshops, and is a former President of the Nottingham & District Society of Organists. Peter Siepmann is a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists and holds the Licentiate diploma of the ABRSM.

His musical education began as a chorister at Bruern Abbey and continued at St Edward's School, Oxford, under the tutelage of Julian McNamara and Anthony Kerr-Dineen. During his time at the University of Nottingham (from which he holds both undergraduate and doctorate degrees), Peter directed the university chorus, orchestra and chamber choir. Following his graduation, he worked as a Teacher of Music in the renowned department at Uppingham School for several years. 

Dr Siepmann trains and directs the church choir Sunday-by-Sunday as well as on regular visits to both domestic and foreign destinations (with recent years seeing tours to Notre-Dame de ParisWestminster Abbey, and many of the UK's cathedrals). As well as developing the Saturday morning series of 'Coffee Break' Concerts, he oversaw the fund raising, design and installation of the new church organ which was installed at Christmas 2010.
