Jazz has a future!

High School All-Stars

A pre-professional training program for current Bay Area high school age jazz musicians, the All-Stars rehearse and perform throughout the school year at the SFJAZZ Center, receive mentorship and clinics with leading jazz professionals, record a professional studio album, compose and arrange original music in addition to studying a wide range of repertoire, and appear at prestigious music festivals and competitions.

Although it may be a cliché to boast that the future of jazz is in good hands, the skilled young musicians in our All-Stars program continue to earn accolades wherever they appear, including numerous Downbeat Awards, first place in The Portland Jazz Forward and Charles Mingus festivals, and so many more.

The SFJAZZ High School All-Stars program is free of charge to all participants.
