Following 30 years as Organist and Director of Music at Southwark Cathedral Peter Wright remains much in demand as an organist and choral director. He was Interim Director of Music at Ripon Cathedral from November 2020 until December 2021 and, last autumn, was Acting Director of Music at Jesus College, Cambridge. In recognition of his work in church music he holds honorary fellowships of the RSCM and the Guild of Church Musicians.
Now a Vice-President of the Royal College of Organists, Peter was Chief Examiner from 1997 before becoming President (2005-2008). He is also a trustee of the Nicholas Danby Trust which awards scholarships and bursaries for conservatoire study within Europe.
