We are overjoyed to bring back the ‘one-off’ that is Jess Gillam. Jess 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.
Now also one of the brightest and most engaging voices on BBC Radio 3, Jess and Ensemble promise repertoire including music by Leonard Bernstein, Astor Piazzolla, Phillip Glass and Will Gregory.
An electrifying and eclectic finale to this year’s festival.
