Giant Steps

Thank you to all of our Giant Steps Members!

Three years ago we launched the Giant Steps Founding Members program for the SFJAZZ Center. You and nearly 1,200 other arts supporters chose to take part and help us build the first stand-alone facility for jazz in the United States.

Not only did you help open this new landmark, you have made it an enormous success. Concerts continue to sell-out and feedback from fans, the media and musicians continue to praise this achievement:

One of the most perfect performance spaces ever in terms of comfort, sightlines, and sound.“ – San Francisco Chronicle on Miner Auditorium

This is a beautiful place to have music performed...This is probably going to be the model for the rest of the country.” – Terrence Blanchard

Without a doubt, the best acoustics I’ve experienced in any auditorium.” – Sarah Forsman and Dan Bulos, SFJAZZ Members since 2004
