MARKHAM SARAH (UK)




MARKHAM SARAH (UK)
Sarah Markham graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music with a Degree and Professional Performer’s Diploma (with Distinction), and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, USA with a Master in Music Degree, winning scholarships from the Countess of Munster Musical Trust and the Sir James Caird Trust.

Competition success with the Royal Over-Seas League Music Competition and the Park Lane Group led to a busy performing schedule as a soloist and chamber musician in major UK venues including the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room, as well as internationally throughout Europe, America, Canada, and the Far East. She has also broadcast live on Radio 3 and Classic FM radio. Sarah has been invited to perform at the last five World Saxophone Congresses. She has commissioned and premièred major new works for saxophone and piano, saxophone quartet, and saxophone ensemble.

To date Sarah has released six CDs of solo and chamber music including “Saxophone Recital” and “James Rae Sonatinas for Saxophone” on the Prologue label, and “Simply Four Saxophones” by the Adelphi Saxophone Quartet on the EMI label. She has recently taken up the position of Artistic Director of the label Saxophone Classics, and her latest CD “Run, Sing, Fly” has been released on this label.

As a chamber musician, Sarah works regularly with pianist Paul Turner, as baritone saxophonist in the Northern Saxophone Quartet, and soprano saxophonist in Scorch – a vibrant ensemble exploring new music for saxophones and percussion, MORE, and the Tribune Octet. Sarah is musical director of the Yorkshire Saxophone Choir, and she regularly directs several ensembles and is in demand as a clinician throughout the UK. Sarah is visiting saxophone tutor at the Royal College of Music junior department, Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Leeds College of Music, and the universities of Huddersfield, Sheffield, and York.
