Joe Cooper was a chorister at St Peter's Collegiate Church,
Wolverhampton where he was Head Chorister and Organ Scholar. Joe attended
the Birmingham Conservatoire under tutors Henry Fairs and Paul Spicer.
Before his appointment at St Alphege he ran the music department at St
Bartholomew's in Penn for five years where he built up a successful choir culminating
in tours and the production of CDs. Now at St Alphege he is determined to
give the choirs national acclaim and make the church the centre of music in the
town. Emphasis is placed on links with schools and music societies, but
of course the most important part of the job is the day-to-day running of the
choirs resulting in the exploration of great repertoire and high standards for
all choristers involved. Joe has been at St Alphege since October 2012
and welcomes any interest in the choirs and the music department.
