Free Eastside Jazz Fridays

In partnership with our friends at B:Music, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire is jumping into the Free Jazz Friday schedule to keep a weekly format going for you. Same times, still great music, still free admission, just different venue.

Join Tilly Clark and her ensemble as she presents her Final Recital in Jazz, with a Latin twist. This recital will round off her three-year postgraduate degree in Jazz at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.

Having studied Spanish and Russian for her undergraduate degree, she regularly sings in languages such as Spanish and Portuguese, and this recital is no exception. Expect to hear original Spanish-lyric compositions, Bossa Nova, Tango, and Afro-Cuban, and songs from the Great American Songbook.

Juliane Deil is a jazz pianist with a unique sound, blending traditional jazz language with classical influences. Currently a Master’s student in jazz piano at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, she recently took part in B:Music’s talent development programme RISE UP.

Growing up regularly performing as a soloist and accompanist, she achieved a Performer’s Diploma with honours aged 16, and discovered her love for jazz in Richmond Music Trust youth bands.

Moving to New York with her family in 2015 allowed her to continue her jazz and classical tuition at Hoff-Barthelson Music School, leading her to study a music degree at Durham University. While at Durham, she performed with her trio at Durham Jazz Festival and gained regular function work as pianist and musical director of Hatfield Big Band.

Her recent performance groups include the Juliane Deil Quartet, who supported Bruno Heinen at the Eastside Jazz Club and performed at the B:Music Jazz Festival, and The Deil Clark Duo. She is excited to continue working under the mentorship of Rebecca Nash, with some of Juliane’s main jazz influences being Oscar Peterson, Red Garland and Aaron Parks.

Running time approx. 135 minutes
