Stuart King, clarinet

Stuart King enjoys a diverse, challenging and rewarding career that incorporates performing, teaching, animateurship and directing. A graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Stuart studied clarinet with Dame Thea King and Joy Farrall.

Stuart’s passion lies in the realms of chamber music and contemporary performance. He has worked with many of the leading talents of his generation and thrives on innovative creative collaborations with artists from many disciplines, including most recently Brief Candles a collaboration with Rolf Hind, David Alberman, SPNM & the Richard Alston Dance Company.

From relatively modest beginnings over a decade ago, the ensemble has evolved into a vibrant, multi-faceted and multi-skilled team who passionately deliver concerts and outreach work of the highest standard. Stuart has led the ensemble into lasting relationships, residencies and associations with organisations such as the Spitalfields Festival, where CHROMA is currently Ensemble in Residence for Education, Royal Holloway, University of London (Ensemble in Residence) and Tête-à-Tête Opera (Associate Ensemble).
