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.
Students will study the art of composing in real time with NEA Jazz Master Roscoe Mitchell. Utilizing a series of exercises designed to create balance and cohesion within any given ensemble, Mr. Mitchell will share his concept of the “scored improvisation,” enabling all participants to create compositions within a collective improvisational approach. Open to all instrumentalists and vocalists, this very special masterclass will shed light on ways to develop compositional as well as improvisational skills within a group dynamic.
Observation welcome with advance reservation; space is limited
