Jess Gillam made history in 2016 when, at the age of 17, she became the first saxophonist to win the BBC Young Musician Woodwind Prize. Since then, her exceptional musicianship and charismatic stage presence have endeared her to concert and festival audiences, adding them to her millions of television fans.

She now balances a busy performance schedule with her studies at the Royal Northern College of Music. Jess moves effortlessly between many different musical genres, from concerto performances with leading orchestras, to jazz groups, to chamber music settings.

The programme she has chosen for us illustrates her eclectic taste, ranging from French ‘impressionism’ to film music and, of course, jazz.
