Watch: High School All-Stars Virtual Summer Concert

High School All-Stars Virtual Summer Concert
THU, JUN 24 • 5 PM PT (8 PM ET)

Comprised of two ensembles - the Big Band, led by Paul Contos, and the Combo, led by Dann Zinn - the SFJAZZ High School All-Stars is pre-professional training program for current Bay Area high school age jazz musicians. In a typical year, the All-Stars rehearse and perform throughout the school year at the SFJAZZ Center, receive mentorship and clinics with leading jazz professionals, record a studio album, and appear at music festivals and competitions. This year however, the All-Stars have rehearsed outdoors, in distanced sections, or via video conferencing in order to keep all members safe and healthy. This virtual performance is the result of individual members working at the Center, in outdoor performing venues, and online to create this beautiful musical collage.
