As an undergraduate at King’s College London, Sam Corkin studied the Saxophone under Richard Addison at the Royal Academy of Music. Graduating in 2007, he went on to study with John Harle and Christian Forshaw for a Master’s in Advanced Performance at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where on completion, he was awarded a prestigious Artists Fellowship for a further year of study.
Recent performances include solo recitals in Bath Abbey, Rochester Cathedral, Canterbury Cathedral, the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford; and a concert of specially commissioned music for the Late Music Festival, York. Sam has also performed a concerto at St John’s, Smith Square, and with the London Symphony Orchestra at Barbican Hall. Recently he has been collaborating with the Choir Siglo De Oro to commission new works for choir and saxophone which have been premiered in Malta and soon to be released on C.D. though Regent Records. Through the publisher Music Sales, Sam has written and contributed to a number of published books on the saxophone.
In addition to Sam’s instrumental career, he also works professionally as a vocalist, regularly deputising within the choirs of Canterbury, Rochester and Chelmsford Cathedrals, The Chapel Royal of Hampton Court Palace, and with professional groups across the Southeast.
