This event is over.


To pianist Aya Sekine, jazz is akin to spontaneous conversation and storytelling—making music with others is no different from communication between individuals.


2022 marks Sekine’s 20th year of being a professional jazz artist in Singapore. Looking back on the past two decades, she has had so many enjoyable jazz conversations with great musicians. Ready to begin a new chapter of her life, Sekine will celebrate her 20-year milestone by playing some of her favourite standards with two different trios.


Mask-wearing is required for all indoor events. No tickets will be issued. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
