Historic Opening Night Concert

The Historic Opening Night Concert of the SFJAZZ Center will feature a star-filled line up “consecrating” the stage of the Robert N. Miner Auditorium. Hosted by Bill Cosby, the concert will include McCoy Tyner, Chick Corea, Joshua Redman, Bobby Hutcherson, Esperanza Spalding, Mary Stallings, John Handy, Pete Escovedo, the SFJAZZ Collective, and the new SFJAZZ Center Resident Artistic Directors Regina Carter, Bill Frisell, Jason Moran, John Santos and Miguel Zenón amongst other special guests.

This one-time-only gathering of jazz stars will be at the center of the Opening Night celebration, which will include pre- and post-parties to celebrate the opening of the first stand-alone building for jazz in America.

The Historic Opening Night Concert and festivities will benefit the artistic and education programs of SFJAZZ.

A limited number of Concert Patron $500 tickets will be on sale at the end of November.

Past SFJAZZ fundraising events have sold out fast, so to avoid disappointment, be sure to take advantage of these early VIP sponsorship opportunities. Check back for details regarding availability of individual tickets and updates of special guest appearances.
