Shawn Werner joined St. Peter’s in November 2013. Shawn holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in music with a piano performance emphasis from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Born and raised in Colorado, he began playing the piano at the age of 6. Later on, Shawn began leading worship for the youth group at his home church on Wednesday nights, on mission trips, and occasionally provided special music during alter calls on Sunday mornings.

After college, Shawn primarily worked in the music industry/arts administration realm including programming, coordinating patron services experiences at New York City’s Lincoln Center, working in music print royalties, supplying piano accompaniment for Madison Ballet, managing development initiatives, and as an artist agent.

In his free time, Shawn enjoys discovering new music of all kinds, learning, making and trying new recipes, reading, biking, camping, hiking, backpacking, kayaking and canoeing, traveling, ruthlessly cheering on the Badgers, and he may or may not have an (unhealthy) addiction to playing and watching hockey and golf.
