When the 17-year old Jess Gillam became the first saxophonist ever to win the Woodwind Final of BBC Young Musician in 2016, it was blindingly obvious that she had star quality. Her Saffron Hall debut is a showcase for a young artist who transcends genres; as The Times put it, prepare yourself for “hot licks, lustrous tone and winning passion”.
Free tea, coffee, sherry and squash will be served after the concert.
