With a high level of public support and participation, Taichung Jazz Festival, now entering its 15th year, has become the most anticipated event in the autumn. Every year, there are more than one million jazz fans gathering together in the Taichung Civic Square, swinging to the music.

This year, all jazz fans in Taiwan are welcome to join us to be the Jazz Volunteers!

After the courses, you will totally fall in love with the charm of the swinging rhythm of jazz music!

In addition, volunteers will be divided into different teams based on individual professionals and ambitions.
