A Bit About Pete

Pete HarrisonPete studied at the Royal College of Music, not really sure what life would hold in store for him, but certain that something interesting would come along. Having worked with various groups and orchestras, he was asked to play in a West End show, “The Hunting of the Snark” by Mike Batt. This led to a run of different shows including “Crazy for You” “Martin Guerre” Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” and “Lautrec” His first real conducting opportunity came when Jae Alexander (Musical Director) left “Crazy for You”. Paul Maguire took over the position which meant they needed an extra conductor for the show, and he was offered the job. From there he carried on as assistant conductor in the subsequent shows. Through his West End contacts he is also now working with Andy Barnwell fixing bands for shows as well as conducting big concerts and commercial sessions including several with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Raymond Gubbay Ltd.

He is also the Musical Director for Inspiration Choir in Southampton.
