UNESCO officially designated 30 April to be International Jazz Day in 2011. In the spirit of uniting people from all corners of the globe through the universal language of jazz, join the Jazz Association (Singapore), otherwise known as JASS, and its youth orchestra, JassYO!, in commemorating UNESCO International Jazz Day with a rousing concert the Sunday before.
The repertoire will comprise songs from original compositions by Singaporean jazz composers as well as international jazz standards. The concert will feature JASS Executive & Music Director Jeremy Monteiro and Associate Music Director Tan Weixiang who will take turns to direct JassYO! and play the piano.
The concert will also feature the “Godfather of Singapore Jazz,” Louis Soliano, on percussion. Louis will also sing a couple of songs, including the well-loved classic “What a Wonderful World.”
So sit back and let the universal language of jazz lift your spirit and stir your soul.
