‘A Brief History of Jazz' returns virtually this year.

Presented by The Jazz Association (Singapore), making a comeback and helming the event is Singaporean jazz veteran Professor Jeremy Monteiro who has been leading the past few editions, along with award-winning flutist, Rit Xu, and bassist, Siheng Teng, who will be serenading the audience with jazz tunes through the ages.

In true 2020 fashion, this year’s event will be held online via livestreaming platform, Peatix.
