For the past 12 years, Esplanade has dedicated the month of July to the colourful genre of jazz. The annual series Jazz in July brings together both artists and audiences at the Esplanade to celebrate jazz and its diverse subgenres and outfits.

It is a platform for Singapore jazz artists to present meaningful projects and showcase their musical artistry. The month-long programme series also aims to grow our audience’s interest  inand appreciation for the genre through a variety of exciting and accessible offerings. 

These include free performances, talks, jazz jams and listening parties.

But in line with the current government advisory on COVID-19, Esplanade will not be able to welcome audiences back at performance venues, said organisers.
