Jess Gillam presents
A Festive Evening with Jess Gillam Ensemble
Friday 9 December 7.30-9.15pm
A warming, wintery concert played by the dynamic, energetic Jess Gillam Ensemble, featuring festive favourites and music from Jess’s classical No. 1 albums.
A musical force of nature, Jess Gillam has been forging her own adventurous path since she shot to fame becoming the first saxophonist to reach the finals of BBC Young Musician and the youngest ever soloist to perform at the Last Night of the Proms. Passionate about inspiring and bringing joy to people through music, Jess invites audiences on journeys of musical discovery through her electrifying performances and eclectic programming. Her infectious enthusiasm and passion for classical and non-classical music lights up every stage and in her newly formed Jess Gillam Ensemble she brings together a group of brilliant musicians who share her bold, uplifting and open-minded approach.
After topping the classical charts with her latest album ‘TIME’, Jess performs music from the record with a small ensemble made up of an incredible group of musicians from a wide range of musical backgrounds but with roots in classical music. This promises to be an explosive concert designed to showcase the diversity, dynamism and versatility of the saxophone, and to inspire audiences to reflect, dance and smile!
