Peter’s first professional singing was with the Australian Opera Chorus in 1978, in Sydney.  He has since sung in many operas with State opera, SA, as well as taking over 30 principal roles in opera, G and S, and musicals.

He has had wide experience as a soloist in oratorio, having performed in the Messiah,  Carmina Burana,  Faure’s Requiem Mass,  Christus in both the St Matthew and St John Passion by Bach.
