Pepper Choplin earned his Bachelor of Music degree at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and Master of Music degree in composition at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas.
He currently has over two hundred anthems in addition to seven choral musicals. His musical experiences range from church musician to theme park entertainer. He has performed musical styles from rock to classical to bluegrass.
Pepper leads events throughout the country as composer, clinician, conductor and entertainer. Audiences respond with laughter and with tears as he conducts and sings his unique mix of inspirational and humorous music in churches and conferences.
Pepper has several CDs to his credit including his self produced, Pepper Is My Real Name, which features his humorous songs. His recording, Hold On, is a solo album of his most popular inspirational songs.
Much of Pepper's creative energy has gone into planning creative and vibrant worship for churches, most recently Greystone Baptist Church in Raleigh, NC where he was Minister of Music. Pepper now devotes his full-time energies to composing. Many of his anthems are born out of a need at his own church. Pepper's chief desire is "to create music that will lead people to worship in a dramatic way."
