Stroud Life write: “Sam, who grew up in the town’s Folly Lane, says he owes his success to Wycliffe College in Stonehouse where he studied music on a full scholarship before going on to study at Gonville and Calus College, Cambridge.

“Wycliffe helped me discover classical music and so many people helped me realise the opportunities that were available,” he said. Sam played piano from a young age and then started singing in the school’s junior choir. By the time he was 15, Sam knew it was what he wanted to do.

“Classical music was always my favourite music,” said Sam. “It never occurred to me that it would be something I would do for my career.”

Sam joined VOCES8 two years ago and also belonged to Stroud Choral Society.
