SFJAZZ

The nonprofit arts organization celebrates the history of American jazz by presenting and facilitating jazz education in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Respecting a Rich Cultural and Musical Tradition

SFJAZZ

Housed at the SFJAZZ Center in San Francisco's cultural corridor, SFJAZZ is an international champion of the study, performance, and appreciation of jazz. The organization is committed to understanding and embodying jazz's dynamic history in American society – from its roots in the African American community to its international proliferation. It does so through diverse programming, including the annual performance season, the SFJAZZ Summer Sessions, and the San Francisco Jazz Festival, as well as by offering educational opportunities for aspiring musicians.

In 2004, SFJAZZ founded the SFJAZZ Collective, a leaderless group and a democratic composer's workshop performing the latest representations of today's celebrated jazz artists. Additionally, SFJAZZ offers classes, workshops, and concerts for children, families, and schools. This plethora of programming reinforces the idea of jazz as a compelling catalyst for bringing communities together.
