Sam Ewens - Trumpet

Whether its a fanfare for the procession, lyrical music during the signing of the register or a triumphant march as you leave the church, Sam can provide professional trumpet playing with a real finesse that adds that extra sparkle to your wedding ceremony.

Sam is a graduate of the Royal College of Music, completing his masters degree there with the 'Sir Philip Shelbourne Award for Brass'.

Sam's varied career has seen him perform with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Orpheus Sinfonia whilst also performing solo arias and oratorios as part of the London Handel Festival. He has also recorded fanfares for BBC Radio 3, performed concerti at the Royal Albert Hall and St John's Smith Square, and has recently been appointed Principal Trumpet with the prestigious Santander Festival Orchestra.

Sam is much in demand as a ceremonial trumpeter and has provided music for services at some of the UK's most prestigious venues - Westminster Abbey, Westminster Cathedral, Westminster Central Hall, St Paul's Cathedral, Southwark Cathedral and Wells Cathedral to name a few.

As a versatile musician, Sam prides himself on being able to tailor his playing to suit your needs. He knows all the repertoire from memory and can adapt his performances to suit any acoustic. Whether its the largest of cathedral's or the smallest of halls, he can add that special touch of grandeur to your day.

What people say...

Dear Sam, I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say the most enormous thank you for all your help with my niece’s wedding on Saturday. It goes without saying that my family were completely bowled over with your performances and people didn’t stop talking about it all weekend.

Sam - thank you for making our day so special. Walking down the aisle to my favourite piece Eternal Source of Light Divine, played with such beauty and stillness, will be something I'll never forget. I only wish we had recorded the service!

Your playing was fantastic & you contributed so much throughout the service. We love the fact that our journey together is starting with a fanfare!
