Men in Jazz” is a project carried out by the Evangelical Lutheran Church Social Service-Hong Kong (ELCHK) and was first established in 2011. Members of Men in Jazz constituted of men over the age of 50 and are at their golden age. Most of our band members do not possess any music background
The mission of Men in Jazz is mainly to help these men of golden age. Having to face pressure from work environment, the band has transformed into a place where they seek peace and relax when being away from work. Music can bring solace to them and support them mentally. Music also connects them and serves as a tool in building them a new social network after retirement. For those who had missed out the opportunity to pursue music during their younger days, Men in Jazz helps to revive their dreams.
The band performed in 2015 Chiayi City International Band Festival. It was invited by the Chiayi County Cultural Affairs Department. We are the first elderly wind band to perform in Chiayi City International Band Festival. It is significant on elderly music development in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
