Amy Dickson

Twice nominated for a Grammy™ award, Australian-British Amy Dickson has been acknowledged by BBC Music Magazine as one of the world’s six best classical saxophonists ever. She has recorded eight solo albums for Sony Music. Recognised for her remarkable, distinctive tone and exceptional musicality, she began her musical studies at the age of two and took her first saxophone lesson in Sydney aged six. Amy made her concerto debut at 16, and on her 18th birthday made her first recording as soloist with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. That year she moved to London to study at the Royal College of Music with Kyle Horch, then at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with Arno Bornkamp. Amy made history by becoming the first saxophonist ever to win the following prizes: the James Fairfax Australian Young Artist of the Year Award (1998), the Gold Medal at the Royal Overseas League Competition (2004), the Symphony Australia Young Performer of the Year Award (2004) and the Prince’s Prize (2005). In 2013 she was awarded a Classic BRIT Award and in 2016 she was named Young Australian of the Year at Australia House, London. Read more.
