Jess Gillam is the Young Ambassador for the Ulverston International Music Festival. Alongside pianist and Artistic Director Anthony Hewitt, Jess is responsible for personally engaging with hundreds of local school-children through UIMF’s outreach and education programmes.
Hot off her success at the 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition, Jess will be back again with a concert designed especially for the younger audience. She’ll introduce us to the vibrant world of the saxophone with some funky pieces, chat about her experiences performing on television, and show a few video clips. There’ll even be a bit of audience participation too, concluding with a chance to ask a few questions. Come along to be entertained and amazed at Jess’ extraordinary talent.

“Her stage presence is charismatic, infectiously extrovert, and highly expressive as is her sound which ranged from vibrantly coloured and imaginative to haunting and delicate.” Bachtrack Review
