Join us on a virtual musical journey and explore the evolution of jazz from the early 1900s through to the present day!

Let Professor Jeremy Monteiro take you on a musical tour of the history of jazz with local jazz talents Rit Xu (flute) and Siheng Teng (bass), and enjoy their demonstration of the historical and stylistic milestones of the genre's progression with delightful improvisations and performances.

This talk will cover the evolution of jazz from the Blues to early jazz, New Orleans jazz (often referred to as Dixieland), the birth of modern jazz in 1927 with Louis Armstrong, Swing, Bebop, Latin jazz, all the way to fusion and contemporary jazz.

We are live-streaming our talk this time, so that you can enjoy the journey from the safety and comfort of your home (or anywhere you may be)!

For this special online edition of the talk, tickets are priced at S$5 each, with Early Bird tickets at S$4 (our usual ticket price is S$10-S$15), all in the spirit of "letting the music play on!" in the face of the pandemic!
