A WARMING and wintry concert is set to be held in a music icon’s hometown.

Ulverston’s Jess Gillam will be joined by her ensemble for a winter concert featuring festive favourites and music from her classical number one albums.

The show is billed as: “A musical force of nature, Jess Gillam has been forging her own adventurous path since she shot to fame becoming the first saxophonist to reach the finals of BBC Young Musician and the youngest ever soloist to perform at the Last Night of the Proms.

“Passionate about inspiring and bringing joy to people through music, Jess invites audiences on journeys of musical discovery through her electrifying performances and eclectic programming. Her infectious enthusiasm and passion for classical and non-classical music lights up every stage and in her newly formed Jess Gillam Ensemble she brings together a group of brilliant musicians who share her bold, uplifting and open-minded approach.”

The show will be at The Coronation Hall on December 9.
