About Awards for Young Musicians

Musical talent is everywhere but opportunity isn’t: family finances and other obstacles too often get in the way. AYM is here to change this is two key ways. By:

  • Supporting young musicians from low income families, with funding and other help
  • Supporting music education through training, advocacy and research.

This combination creates real impact. See our website for more:


Jess Gillam, saxophone

On Tuesday 6 September 2022 acclaimed saxophonist Jess Gillam will take to the Hallé St. Peter’s stage for an eclectic evening in support of Awards for Young Musicians (AYM). The music charity supports talented young people from low-income families, helping them overcome financial and social obstacles. Jess will be joined by some brilliantly talented young musicians on AYM’s Awards programme. Jess is an AYM Patron and an Alumna herself and we’re thrilled that she’s headlining what’s sure to be a special evening.
