The Jazz Association (Singapore) (JASS) Benefit Gala 2023 is now planned as a live event, and will be held on Saturday, 2 September 2023, at Shangri-La Hotel Singapore.

Themed, Over the Rainbow, the JASS Benefit Gala 2023 will bring a unique experience to you and your guests. On this special evening, besides a sumptuous dinner, our Gala guests will also be treated to a performance by two-time Grammy Nominee, Roberta Gambarini. She will be performing alongside the Jazz Association Singapore Orchestra (JASSO) led by Maestro Jeremy Monteiro. Roberta will perform songs from her best known recordings.

Your unwavering support has helped JASS remain steadfast in our mission to promote the participation, engagement and excellence of jazz in Singapore with our presentations like our Jazz for Kids musical, Will The Egg Hatch, which was a big hit for children and their parents. Mental health is an important part of our work and we raised awareness of how enjoying jazz music through our presentation Swinging Through Our Emotions can help to ease mental health issues. We continued to strengthen the jazz eco-system through the JASS Scholarship, the JASS Support Fund and our partnership with ART DIS (formerly known as Very Special Arts) to ensure jazz is accessible to to all.

In 2023, we will launch our junior orchestra, re-invent the Lion City Jazz Festival to accentuate mentorship for the youth and launch our Jazz for Seniors programme.

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.
