Join the dynamic Jess Gillam Ensemble for a warming, wintery concert featuring festive favourites and music that spans centuries.
This sparky and energetic ensemble featuring saxophone, strings, bass, percussion, and piano is rooted in classical music but takes inspiration from many different corners of the musical universe. The ensemble is led by saxophonist Jess Gillam, who has been forging her own adventurous path since she shot to fame becoming the first saxophonist to reach the finals of BBC Young Musician, the youngest ever soloist to perform at the Last Night of the Proms and the recipient of a Classic BRIT Award.
