ONE of Ilkley’s most historic properties will host a Jazz Concert this week.

The show takes place at the Manor House on Friday, April 20 and will feature contemporary jazz pianist Jamil Sheriff and Mark Chandler on trombone and trumpet.

Both musicians are tutors at Leeds College of Music, teaching on its undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

Jamil is a composer, arranger and pianist who has toured extensively while Mark, who has worked internationally, combines tributes to the jazz masters of the past with his own compositions.

Organised by the Friends of the Manor House, the concert starts at 7.30pm and will be held in the venue’s upstairs gallery.

Commenting on the gallery’s ‘excellent acoustics’ and its use in the months ahead, a spokeswoman for the Friends said: “We look forward to enjoying a range of performances covering instrumental and vocal music encompassing classical, baroque, jazz, folk and more from British and overseas performers.”

Tickets for the show cost £12 or £10 for students and can be booked by contacting Liz Bowen on (01943) 609393.
