Jess Gillam, saxophone & Thomas Weaver, piano

Musical prelude · 2 PM

The Baker-Baum Concert Hall

British classical saxophonist Jess Gillam is talent, artistry, personality, and showmanship all rolled into one dizzying package. Forging her own adventurous path since she shot to fame becoming the first saxophonist to reach the finals of the BBC’s Young Musician competition, she is the youngest ever soloist to perform at the Last Night of the Proms. Jess invites audiences on journeys of musical discovery through her electrifying performances and eclectic programming. Her wildly entertaining program will leave you seeing the saxophone in a whole different light.

 

“Not just one of Britain’s most virtuosic instrumentalists, but also an unstuffy, inspiring personality”
The Times of London

 

“A true inspiration… she frankly rocks!”
