jazz and improvised music


As Australia’s leading jazz organisation for more than 30 years, SIMA has been instrumental in providing a regular, critically acclaimed platform for Australian musicians to perform. Our volunteers play a vital place in our being able to do this work.

We are always looking for new volunteers to add to our rich and diverse group of friends who offer help and assistance across a number of services and departments.
