We are delighted once again to be presenting the annual concert dedicated to the memory of Brian and Margaret Roper; a concert that encourages future generations to develop their love of classical music.

Youth is at the heart of this wonderful evening’s music making with two BBC Young Musician finalists. Isata Kanneh-Mason gives her second performance at The Bath Festival with Clara Schumann’s piano concerto, and Proms star Jess Gillam, who took the Last Night of the Proms by storm, performs a Saxophone Concerto by John Williams, composer of Star Wars and Harry Potter. A fizzing evening of music is brought to a close by Ravel’s blazing Bolero.

‘Jess Gillam….. lighting up the hall with her seemingly effortless virtuosity’
