Sunday 12th June 2016: Solo recital with Anthony Hewitt for UIMF

Jess will perform a solo recital consisting of mixed classical and jazz repertoire with international concert pianist Anthony Hewitt who is also the director of the Ulverston International Music Festival.
Since the inception of the Ulverston International Music Festival in 2004 by acclaimed classical pianist Anthony Hewitt, enthusiastic audiences have been treated to top stars and ensembles of our generation on their doorstep, including Nicola Benedetti, Tasmin Little, Chloe Hanslip, Alina Ibragimova, Steven Isserlis, Natalie Clein, Emma Johnson, Martin Roscoe, Sinfonia Viva and the Northern Sinfonia Orchestra, plus jazz artists Dave Newton, Claire Martin and Benet McLean – all performing diverse programmes in venues all over the town.
Last year, Jess performed a solo recital to a sold out Coronation Hall and she was also the Young Ambassador for the Festival, visiting local primary schools to perform and make presentations about music and the Festival. She also performed with the acclaimed Will Todd Trio.
