Peter Maus started playing the piano at an early age and was a motivated singer in the Antwerp Cathedral Choir for many years.
He holds a master's degree in organ and a teaching certificate from the Leuven Lemmens Institute (LUCA School of Arts). In recent years he has played recitals in his own country on the cathedral organs of Antwerp, Mechelen and Ypres. For several years he was organist-titular of the St Laurentius Church in Hove, and active as one of the organists of the monumental Van Bever organ in the Brussels Dominican Church.
The passion for choral singing runs like a thread through his life. During his studies, he took over the leadership of the Koristen van Keizersberg in Leuven, the male choir affiliated with the Benedictine Abbey. As a member of Chant Group Psallentes he sings numerous concerts and participates in several CD recordings. Since 2010, he has been working as a repetitor and accompanist with theCHORALE, Antwerp's largest oratorio choir.
He is guest professor of ear training at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp and teaches at the Kunsthumaniora in Antwerp and Wilrijk. Outside of class he sings in the Zangerscollectief: ten people who share their passion for music and singing together with each other and with their audience. With the non-profit organization Saturday Sunday, he works on various projects involving pop-up choirs, including the annual "In Koor".
As an organist, he has a preference for the symphonic repertoire from the 19th and 20th centuries and for organs from the same stylistic period that are often somewhat neglected in Flanders. On this subject he wrote several contributions in Orgelkunst, the Flemish magazine for organ culture. In 2019 Jef Neve asked him to create his composition for the symphonic organ in BOZAR Brussels. This world premiere was recorded and broadcast by Radio Klara.
Affiliated with the KCA as: lecturer in ear training.
