Soup Concert – Rising Stars with saxophone

English saxophonist Jess Gilliam plays music by Poulenc and more.

Rising Stars is a unique and forward-looking collaboration between 22 of Europe’s leading concert halls, all members of the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO). Six young musicians and ensembles from various countries are selected each year and given the opportunity to tour the concert halls and perform before international audiences.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear tomorrow’s classical music stars today. Experience shows that those who are selected as Rising Stars also have internationally successful careers. This year’s Rising Stars will be presented during an intensive weekend of chamber music at Konserthuset Stockholm.

Saxophonist Jess Gillam, nominated to Rising Stars by Sage Gateshead, has performed at Last Night of the Proms and was the first saxophonist to reach the finale of BBC Young Musician. She performs together with pianist Zeynep Özsuca.
