In view of COVID-19, our gala is planned for Q1 2021 and we will announce the new date in due course. Meanwhile, we appeal for your steadfast support to help keep jazz and our musicians going. To book your table(s), or to make an Outright Donation via bank transfer, credit card or cheque, kindly visit our gala microsite at jazzgala.sg. For enquiries, please email [email protected]

Gala guests will be treated to the mesmerising vocals and captivating stage presence of jazz diva, Laura Fygi, who will perform "Let There Be Love" and other well-loved jazz tunes alongside JASS co-founder, Cultural Medallion-winner and Singapore's King of Swing, Jeremy Monteiro, and the Jazz Association Singapore Orchestra (JASSO).

Jeremy has tirelessly championed Singapore jazz and his dedication has led JASS to elevate the Singapore jazz scene in the few short years since our formation in 2016. The Gala is our core fundraising activity to raise much-needed funds to sustain our programmes which include continuing our community outreach performances to bring the joy of jazz to all during this trying period and beyond, funding jazz scholarships to nurture young local talents, and supporting local jazz musicians including providing short-term financial aid to deserving local jazz musicians impacted by crisis.

About the Charity

Jazz Association (Singapore), or JASS, was founded in September 2016 with the aim of promoting the participation, engagement, and excellence of jazz in Singapore. In March 2017, we were accorded charity status and subsequently attained IPC status in November 2018.

Our vision is to be a centre of excellence in jazz in Singapore, to bring the joy of jazz to people in Singapore from all walks of life and across diverse communities, and to make Singapore a leading global city of jazz.

Our mission is to play a strong part in lifting the Singapore jazz scene to new heights by:
1. Forming a core pool of established, professional-level local jazz musicians and facilitating continuing education in jazz
2. Leveraging jazz as a unifying force to promote interaction, cohesion and inclusiveness among our diverse communities in Singapore
3. Playing a major role in bridging the needs of the audience with those of the jazz practitioners and other arts groups' objectives
4. Making Singapore a nexus for collaborations between Singaporean and international jazz musicians
5. Developing Singapore into a vibrant city of jazz for Singaporeans, residents and visitors alike
6. Supporting deserving local jazz musicians impacted by crisis with short-term financial aid*

*In July 2020, we added a new mission pillar.
