With the easing of safe management guidelines, the Jazz Association (Singapore) (JASS) Benefit Gala 2022 is now planned as a live event, and will be held on Sunday, 31 July 2022, at Shangri-La Hotel Singapore.

We appeal for your steadfast support to help keep jazz and our musicians going, by making a donation here, or by booking a table via our gala microsite at jazzgala.sg. For enquiries, please email [email protected].

With the support of our donors and partners, JASS has remained steadfast in our mission to promote jazz in Singapore despite the continuing challenges brought about by the pandemic. We have kept both our orchestras going, provided much-needed work for local jazz musicians, continued to nurture local jazz talents through the JASS Music Scholarships, resumed our signature youth development programme, the Lion City Youth Jazz Festival, and expanded our outreach efforts by building new audiences through virtual concerts. We also launched the JASS Crisis Fund to help local jazz musicians impacted by crisis.

Our efforts to achieve excellence in jazz remain imperative. We seek your support of the gala to raise much-needed funds to sustain our programmes.

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 eligible local jazz musicians impacted by crisis with short-term financial aid*

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