SFJAZZ Gala 2015 To Honor Joni Mitchell

Joni Mitchell is an icon. Her innovative, far-ranging vision has influenced countless musicians across all genres. We honor her in an all-star tribute at the SFJAZZ Gala on May 8, where Ms. Mitchell will make a rare public appearance to accept the SFJAZZ Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Gala concert will feature a preeminent line-up including Joe Jackson, Kris Kristofferson, Patti Austin, Kurt Elling, Laurie Antonioli and others interpreting her groundbreaking work. Following the concert, guests at the Giant table/ticket level and above will be treated to a late-night supper and entertainment.

The mission of SFJAZZ is to celebrate jazz as a living art form, built on a constantly evolving tradition. No artist better embodies constant evolution than Joni Mitchell. Her collaborations with jazz artists such as Charles Mingus, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Jaco Pastorius, Tom Scott, and Pat Metheny are a hallmark of iconic sensibilities that transcend pop and jazz music.

We are currently offering table packages starting at $25,000 and Individual Concert + Supper tickets starting at $2,500. Later in March, a very limited number of $1,000 Concert-Only tickets will go on sale, based on availability.

To reserve your table or seat, visit sfjazz.org/galatickets.
