SFJAZZ GALA 2023 HONOREE
This year’s Gala celebrates SFJAZZ Founder and Executive Artistic Director Randall Kline. He is a visionary. Step by step, over 40 years, he grew a small community festival into a San Francisco cultural institution and one of the most influential jazz organizations in the world. After a lifetime of championing this uniquely American art form, Randall is stepping down in November 2023. Join us for an evening of all-star performances as we thank him for his incomparable achievements on behalf of jazz.
