Seventeen-year-old Saxophonist, Jess Gillam is due to take part in the Woodwind Final of the BBCs Young Musician of the Year competition.
"Jess Gillam is a wonderful young musician, who works very hard and has a great attitude. For a number of years, she has been studying at the Royal Northern College of Music Junior School, and will be commencing her studies as an undergraduate student at the RNCM in September 2016. Everybody is delighted that Jess has once again reached the Woodwind Final of the BBC Young Musician of the Year, and wish her the best of luck in Cardiff on 7th March. On a personal level, I am really pleased that Jess has chosen to include my piece 'Fujiko' in her programme."
