Since 2008, EFG has been a supporter of the London Jazz Festival, the UK’s largest annual celebration of jazz which takes place every November. In 2013, we became the headline sponsor of the Festival, which is now known as the EFG London Jazz Festival.
The EFG Excellence Series forms part of the EFG London Jazz Festival, and is a programme of world class performances from some of the leading lights in jazz. In recent years, it has featured concerts from performers including Sonny Rollins, Herbie Hancock, Kurt Elling, Courtney Pine, Gilberto Gil, Cleo Laine & John Dankworth, McCoy Tyner, Alison Krauss and Paolo Conte.
EFG also sponsors various concerts in partnership with leading Singapore-based jazz pianist Jeremy Monteiro. It has, for example, supported numerous concerts by The Asian Jazz All-Stars Power Quartet. EFG now supports jazz across Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan and China.
