JAZZ ASSOCIATION SINGAPORE YOUTH ORCHESTRA
Our youth wing, the Jazz Association Singapore Youth Orchestra (JASSYO!), was set up with the objectives of engaging and developing our youth musicians, nurturing their talents, and grooming the future generations of jazz musicians. It comprises around 20 jazz musicians below the age of 35.
JASSYO! made its debut at the inaugural Lion City Youth Jazz Festival in May 2017 in Singapore and held its maiden public outreach concert at the Singapore Botanic Gardens in April 2018 to commemorate UNESCO International Jazz Day. It then performed again at the 2018 Lion City Youth Jazz Festival and has since gone on to perform at public concerts at the Esplanade, and at the Singapore Heritage Festival in collaboration with National Library Board and many other concerts and performances.
