Sally Heath was born into a family of musicians in Chiswick, London. She studied at the Royal College of Music where she won the Concerto Prize with a performance of Beethoven’s 1st piano concerto.
After a postgraduate course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, she was offered a position as an accompanist for both junior and senior departments. Here, Sally formed a trio with clarinettist Joan Lluna and cellist Nick Roberts, appearing frequently in Spain and broadcasting live as part of the Barcelona Festival. Her chamber career flourished and she joined the London Metropolitan Ensemble, with whom she gave a Wigmore Hall concert and a classic FM broadcast. In the early 2000s, Sally took part in the Weybridge Festival with chamber works by Brahms, Mozart, Fauré and Alan Rawsthorne. Her fellow musicians included violinist David Juritz, and cellist, Caroline Dale. As part of the festival also she performed Mozart piano concerto K488 and a Chopin ‘words and music’ evening. Her love of Chopin led to an invitation to play for the Chopin Society in 1994.
As well as her solo and chamber appearances, Sally is a member of the London Metropolitan Orchestra, playing on film and TV soundtracks such as Inspector Morse, Lewis, Hilary and Jackie, Truly Madly Deeply and more recently, The Young Victoria, Still Alice, Shaun the Sheep and Florence Foster Jenkins.
Future engagements include a solo recital in St. David`s Cathedral, Pembrokeshire, this August.
