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.

The Ensemble is passionate about creating an electrifying concert experience for you to enjoy!

‘ Throughout the evening they struck sparks off each other. The result was an exhilarating concert… giving us all an experience that will linger long in the memory.’ The Mail on Sunday
