Saxophonist Jess Gillam is a powerhouse performer of tremendous energy, style and spirit, galvanizing audiences with “irrepressible, unpretentious, outrageously virtuosic music-making” (inews.co.uk). At 22, she is the youngest presenter for BBC Radio 3; her radio show and podcast This Classical Life highlight both her eclectic musical interests and a passionate advocacy for the power of music in society. “Gillam…spreads joy,” The Times declares. In June 2021 she received Britain’s MBE award from Queen Elizabeth for creating the Virtual Scratch Orchestra, a unique global ensemble convening and inspiring over 2,000 people from 30 countries to play together—on instruments of all kinds—during the pandemic.
