The Apex, Bury St Edmunds

Saxophone superstar Jess Gillam burst onto the music scene in 2016 as the first saxophonist ever to reach the final of the BBC Young Musician competition.

She has wowed audiences and inspired young musicians with her passion for music ever since.

Still only 20 years old, Jess has performed internationally, appeared at the Last Night of the Proms and recently launched her own BBC Radio 3 show – This Classical Life. Her first album, 'Rise', was also released in April 2019.

In July 2020, she brings the sound of the saxophone to The Apex alongside the London Mozart Players for an evening that balances the best of classical giants Mozart and Haydn, with the beautiful baroque trills of Marcello and the lyricism of Glazunov. 

If you thought the saxophone was just for jazz, think again; this will be an extraordinary night of music making and a great opportunity to see this young star at the beginning of her career.

Haydn - Symphony No. 44 in E minor (‘Trauer’)

Marcello - Concerto in C minor for soprano saxophone

Glazunov - Concerto in E flat major for alto saxophone Op. 109 

Mozart - Symphony No.29 in A major, K.201

Tickets: £27*, £22*, Under 25's £6. Includes £1 booking fee
