Community

Outreach and Partnerships

Community

SFJAZZ brings world-class jazz artists out of the concert hall and into the community, connecting youth and adults, students and professionals, musicians and non-musicians, with a diverse array of interactive workshops and events.

What we do:

SFJAZZ Education receives dozens of requests monthly for our programs, performers, workshops, and community collaborations. SFJAZZ Outreach programming is free of charge. We review all large partnership requests in June for the following fiscal year and require sufficient lead-time to assess our capacity to collaborate.

Please submit this form and SFJAZZ Education staff will respond to your request.

OPC-SFJAZZ Academy

SFJAZZ Education and the Oakland Public Conservatory of Music (OPC) have identified several goals related to issues of ethnic and gender equity and access to jazz education. This partnership between both SFJAZZ and OPC will serve to strengthen and sustain educational opportunities for middle and high school musicians of color in the Oakland community, and provide essential training for these students to ultimately cultivate proficiency and excellence in jazz.
