Jess Gillam: Ulverston International Music Festival: Sunday 11 June: 7.30pm: Coronation Hall

Jess Gillam made history in 2016 as the first saxophonist to win the Woodwind Final of BBC Young Musician of the Year, and is fast-gaining international recognition as one of the most exciting young saxophonists of today. She is already in demand as both recitalist and concerto soloist, and upcoming highlights include engagements with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and Sinfonia Cymru.

Jess presents a programme of varied repertoire ranging from classical arrangements to jazz-favourites, alongside Anthony Hewitt and a string quartet from Royal Northern College of Music.

She’ll take you on a journey through music by great English jazz saxophonist Barbara Thompson and American jazz legend Chic Corea alongside contemporary works by Michael Nyman and much loved film composer John William’s Escapades. Then there’s Ravel’s Spanish flavoured Piece en forme de Habanera and even music from the Italian baroque with Alessandro Marcello’s Oboe Concerto given a sublime saxophone twist.
