Tickets | £10, £25, £35

Snape Maltings Concert Hall

Part of August Concerts in Snape Maltings Concert Hall

Wednesday 25 August 2021 - 7.30pm

The star saxophonist plays a high-energy programme of Thom Yorke, Phillip Glass, Meredith Monk, Piazzolla and more.

Jess Gillam has been blazing a trail in the music world since she stole the show as the youngest ever soloist at the Last Night of the Proms in 2018. Her remarkable playing is matched by refreshingly eclectic musical tastes and an infectious enthusiasm that lights up her performances. She brings together an ensemble of brilliant musicians who share her open-minded approach.
