Former BBC Young Musician finalist saxophonist Jess Gillam, one of the most acclaimed young classical music stars in recent years, joins London Mozart Players for a concert tour across the UK this summer.
Jess Gillam will bring all her virtuosity and “life affirming talent” (BBCYM) to Deal this July as part of the Deal Music & Arts Festival, with a programme encompassing Glazunov’s romantic and beautifully lyrical Saxophone Concerto and Marcello’s Concerto in C minor for saxophone alongside LMP favourites by classical giants Mozart and Haydn. Still only 21, Jess Gillam burst onto the music scene in 2016 as the first saxophonist ever to reach the final of the BBC Young Musician competition. She has wowed audiences and inspired young musicians with her passion for music ever since – her first album, RISE, released in April 2019, shot to No.1 in the Official UK Classical Charts.
If you thought the saxophone was just for jazz, think again! This will be an extraordinary night of music-making from a Classical Brit winning soloist, an internationally celebrated orchestra.
Tickets for this concert will be released in April 2020 to coincide with the Deal Music & Arts Festival box office release. Please check their website for more information.
