PETER HOLDER is Sub-Organist of St Paul's Cathedral, a post to which he was appointed at the age of 23, following two years as Organ Scholar at Westminster Abbey. His responsibilities at both institutions have involved playing at numerous events of national importance, including the 60th Anniversary of the Coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II and a Service of Remembrance to mark the 10th Anniversary of the London Bombings.

Peter is an Organ Tutor at the Junior Royal Academy of Music and previously held the Pidem Organ Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music, where he also undertook undergraduate and postgraduate studies, gaining numerous scholarships and awards, most notably HRH Princess Alice the Duchess of Gloucester's Prize for exemplary studentship at graduation in 2013. Peter was elected Associate of the Royal Academy of Music last year. He continues his repertoire studies with David Titterington, Jon Laukvik and Patrick Russill, and improvisation with Thierry Escaich.

Peter has previously held posts at St Albans Cathedral, Southwell Minster and The Royal Hospital Chelsea. He has broadcast for BBC radio and television, and his first solo recording, played on the sensational 1797 Holzhey organ of Neresheim Abbey, featuring the works of members of the Bach family, WA Mozart and Christian Heinrich Rinck, will be released by Fugue State Films imminently.
