2018 SFJAZZ Lifetime Achievement Honoree Preservation Hall

There are few instances when a place devoted to creativity, a tangible human-made structure, becomes synonymous with the soul of the art form it houses. The uniquely American expression now known as jazz has its origins in New Orleans’ African-American community, and today, the living heart of this musical culture resides in the French Quarter within the hallowed walls of Preservation Hall, where it has been perpetuated for over five decades.

We honor the rich history of this New Orleans institution at the SFJAZZ Gala 2018 to celebrate the aligned values we share, including a steadfast dedication to music education and a devotion to the spirit of collaboration with artists of all genres and disciplines. Preservation Hall is a model of how a cultural institution can become an integrated part of a city’s identity – an idea that inspires us, and a goal that we continually work towards. Though the environs of Preservation Hall and the SFJAZZ Center are as physically different from each other as can be, we recognize that they have a rare quality in common: as places where the beauty of the moment can be felt and the soul of this music comes to life.
