Manchester Camerata
Jess Gillam saxophone

Programme to include:
Anna Clyne Snake & Ladder (2’) (World Premiere)
Arvo Pärt Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten
Purcell Fantasia

With her impassioned performances and charismatic personality, saxophonist Jess Gillam took the Festival by storm in 2017 and has since gone on to conquer the concert stage with no fewer than four BBC Proms appearances in the space of two years. She returns to Cheltenham for a spectacular programme that includes a World Premiere performance by Anna Clyne, alongside the pioneering Manchester Camerata who, in partnership with Jess, will exploit the magnificent acoustics of Tewkesbury Abbey to the full. The evening winds its way back through time from the brand new work to the genius writing of Henry Purcell.

Tewkesbury Abbey

A stunning Abbey church, consecrated in 1121. Lying at the southern edge of Tewkesbury’s old town, the Abbey quietly dominates the land and skyline with its long nave, Norman arches and “probably the largest and finest Romanesque tower in England” (Pevsner). The building provides a breath-taking setting for Music Festival events.
