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.
There is nothing like the sound of a big band to lift the spirits, and SFJAZZ’s premier community ensemble—the Monday Night Band— proves it with their Family Matinee debut! Led by multi-instrumentalist, bandleader, and composer Adam Theis, this ensemble presents classic to contemporary repertoire, much of it arranged by members of the band. With an age range of high-schoolers to retirees, Monday Night Band brings the community together to play, sing, and dance!
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.
