In 2016, at the age of 17, Jess made history as the first saxophonist to win the Woodwind Final of BBC Young Musician of the Year. She then reached the Grand Final at London's Barbican Hall captivating the public with her talent and charisma. 

Since then, Jess's career has been nothing short of stellar: a recording contract with Decca Classics, appearances in both 2017 and 2019 BBC Proms at the Albert Hall, concerto and solo recital engagements in London and around the UK and her international debut with the Gothenburg Symphony. At the Classical BRIT awards 2018, Jess was selected as winner of the inaugural Sound of Classical Poll - a category for the best emerging artists and ones-to-watch in classical music.

We are excited to be welcoming her to Reading.
