The saxophonist and BBC Young Musician fi nalist Jess Gillam is to appear as a soloist at this year’s BBC Proms in two performances on 23 July. She will play the fi rst movement of Island Songs by Peter Sculthorpe as part of the BBC Ten Pieces Prom (matinee and evening performances) at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
