ALL SFJAZZ SHOWS AND EVENTS CANCELED THROUGH AUGUST 16
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we have made the decision to cancel the remainder of the 2019–20 Season, including all shows and education events that were previously scheduled from March 11–May 31, the 38th Annual San Francisco Jazz Festival, which was scheduled from June 9–21, and Summer Sessions 2020 which was scheduled from July 9–August 16.
If you have tickets to this show, or any of the canceled shows, we ask you to consider donating your tickets back to SFJAZZ to help us address the immediate needs of SFJAZZ, the artists we serve and the education programs we provide.
SFJAZZ Collective founding alto saxophonist presents Golden City Suite, his musical tribute to the immigrant communities of San Francisco, commissioned by the Hewlett Foundation and SFJAZZ and premiering this season. Over the past year, Zenón has conducted interviews in the city’s Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, African-American, and other ethnic communities, gathering new perspectives on the contributions of immigrants to San Francisco and its evolution. Zenón will highlight moments from this large-scale work for nonet, including trombonist Jacob Garchik.
An interactive Family Workshop follows this performance and is FREE to matinee ticket-holders, led by musician, educator and Orff music expert Doug Goodkin. Note: This workshop is limited to a first come, first served basis. Sign up in the lobby before the start of the matinee.
Each one-hour matinee features live performance, audience participation, Q&A, and amazing music.
