Sarah Jackson has been the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s piccoloist since 2003, arriving after 10 years in British Columbia, Canada where she held various flute and piccolo positions with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and a teaching position at the University of British Columbia.
Ms. Jackson received her bachelor of music degree in flute performance from the University of British Columbia. In addition to taking private voice lessons, she specialized in flute and piccolo, studying with Camille Churchfield, former principal flute with the Vancouver Symphony. She moved to McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, for graduate studies with Tim Hutchins, principal flute of the Montreal Symphony. While still a student there, she auditioned for and won her first professional position, second flute with the Vancouver Symphony.
She is an active chamber musician, soloist, clinician, and freelance artist, and has played for numerous films, CD recordings, and TV and radio broadcasts. In addition to orchestral playing and teaching, Sarah Jackson has frequently been engaged as soloist and/or clinician on both flute and piccolo in Venezuela, Belgium, the Netherlands, Japan, the Czech Republic, Canada, and the US.
