Award-winning jazz pianist and composer Nikki Iles joins the Wiltshire Youth Jazz Orchestra for a programme devoted to exploring her repertoire. After joining the orchestra for their summer course, Iles will join the young musicians on stage for this one-off shared concert, performing together and solo.
Having played with musicians such as Norma Winstone, Scott Hamilton and Tony Coe, Nikki’s been described as having a “silvery touch and uncloying emotional warmth” (The Guardian) and has received the award for Best Pianist at the British Jazz Awards.
