Huge congratulations to talented Saxophonist Jess Gillam for having won through to be one of three finalists in the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition.
Jess, who performed superbly in the Woodwind final to become the first Saxophonist to go through to the Semi-final gave another stunning performance of all three pieces to be one of the three finalists.
Andy comments "I am extremely proud that Jess chose to play 'Fujiko', one of my compositions and she performed it brilliantly on both occasions. She is a very talented young musician and we all wish her the very best for the final."
You can watch the final of the competition on BBC Four on Sunday evening, 15th May.
