Jess Gillam Ensemble
Passionate about inspiring and bringing joy to people through music, Jess Gillam and her ensemble invite you on a journey of musical discovery from Bach to Bjork!
A musical force of nature, Jess has been forging her own adventurous path since she shot to fame becoming the first saxophonist to reach the finals of BBC Young Musician and the youngest ever soloist to perform at the Last Night of the Proms.
Her electrifying performances and passion for classical and non-classical music lights up every stage and in her recently-formed Jess Gillam Ensemble she brings together a group of brilliant musicians who share her bold, uplifting and open-minded approach.
After topping the classical charts with her latest album TIME, Jess performs music from the record with a small ensemble made up of an incredible group of musicians from a wide range of musical backgrounds but with roots in classical music.
This promises to be an explosive concert designed to showcase the diversity, dynamism and versatility of the saxophone, and to inspire audiences to reflect, dance and smile!
Please note this concert takes place in a covered Marquee at Russborough's Hippodrome.
