Amy Green

Amy is one of the leading saxophonists of her generation both as a soloist and chamber musician. She has been the recipient of numerous awards and prizes; she has twice been a selected Park Lane Group Artist, was the first saxophonist ever to win the Edward & Helen Hague Woodwind Prize, and received the Royal College of Music’s coveted Tagore Gold Medal for the most outstanding student.

Amy has given recitals at the Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room, Cadogan Hall, St Martin in the Fields and St John’s Smith Square, and performed as a soloist in the BBC Proms Plus series broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

As a chamber musician Amy is the saxophonist in the Riot Ensemble and ANIMA, and her orchestral work includes the London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, English National Opera, Rambert Dance Company, and the Michael Nyman Band. In 2017 Amy recorded with the acclaimed Vida Guitar Quartet for the album ‘Bachianas’, performing works by Villa Lobos and a new commission by Laura Snowden.

At the 2015 World Saxophone Congress in Strasbourg, Amy launched the co-founded project ‘Over 100 years of Women and the Saxophone’, a celebration of the women who were integral in developing and pioneering the instrument and its repertoire throughout the saxophone’s history, and has since taken the project to the European Saxophone Congress in Porto as well as the Royal College of Music, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and the University of Aberdeen.

Amy studied at the Royal College of Music with Kyle Horch and the Paris Conservatoire with Claude Delangle.
