Samuel Jones has just graduated from Clare College Cambridge. We welcome him back to Thaxted following his appearance with Clare College Choir in our summer 2023 season.
Samuel started playing the organ whilst at the Royal Grammar School, Guildford where he gained valuable experience accompanying the Chamber Choir at venues such as Keble College, Oxford and St. Paul’s Cathedral. In the Sixth Form, he was appointed Organ Scholar of the Chapel Royal, St James’ Palace, London where he had the opportunity to play at a broadcast Ballroom Carol Service from Buckingham Palace and at the Royal Maundy service held at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
After leaving school in 2019, Samuel spent a gap year as Organ Scholar at Portsmouth Cathedral, where he assisted in accompanying the cathedral choirs in their eight weekly services and the choral scholars in concerts throughout the year.
During his time at Clare he has enjoyed playing for multiple BBC Radio 3 broadcasts and making a recording with the choir last Summer.
This recital forms part of our Autumn Festival 2023, with proceeds from the weekend going to towards our Developing Artists Programme, which is supported by Essex County Council’s Art and Culture Fund.
Doors will open at 2.00pm. The recital will last approximately one hour.
