The Jazz Association (Singapore) (JASS) organises the annual Lion City Youth Jazz Festival, its linchpin event centred around youth musicians. It comprises a series of workshops and rehearsals culminating in a finale concert, with a focus on nurturing the talent and developing the skills of youth musicians under the tutelage of international jazz legends and prominent professional jazz musicians specially-invited to be their mentors.
The signature of this festival is the week-long series of workshops under its “On-Stage Learning Programme,” an immersive and practical programme for youth musicians to experience rehearsing and playing at professional levels of jazz performance.
