About Us

Jazz Association (Singapore), also known as 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 in Singapore and on 23 November 2018, we attained an Institution of a Public Character (IPC) status.

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

Our Programmes

Our programmes aligned to our vision and mission include:

1. Community Outreach Concerts
Free public concerts to bring the joy of jazz to people in different parts of Singapore.

2. Jazz Appreciation Talks
Educative talks on the rich history and sub-genres of jazz music are conducted to increase understanding and appreciation of jazz.

3. Nurturing Youth Jazz Musicians
Talented and passionate young jazz musicians are given the opportunity to take their musical skills to higher levels. Regular rehearsals in a big band setting and performances help grow youth musicians to their full potential.

4. Overseas Exposure
Through funding and donations, Jazz Association (Singapore) is able to bring our jazz orchestras overseas and fly the Singapore flag high. Overseas exposure of Singapore jazz music helps promote our
country as a leading global jazz hub.
