Fillmore Jazz Heritage Center
CONGRATULATIONS TO SFJAZZ!
This is a historic day in San Francisco. Tonight is the debut performance for the new SFJAZZ Center, a major cultural institution that will attract visitors to our great City from around the world. Only two days ago, the jazz community and City turned out en masse for a ribbon-cutting ceremony amid glorious sunshine to launch the new building that blends into the cityscape through grand and iridescent walls of glass.
SFJAZZ AND JHC CONTINUE TO PARTNER
We are especially proud to continue our partnership with SFJAZZ for a second year, this year through a Koret Discover Jazz four-part series on Jazz and Blues Legends of the Bay Area, May 7-28.
As SFJAZZ continues to provide a venue with great jazz from around the world, we continue to expand our mission of bringing you the story of how jazz originated in San Francisco, with a special emphasis on the history and culture of jazz born and nurtured in the Fillmore District where our Center is located.
A FEBRUARY 24 SALUTE TO JOHN HANDY
There is no more fitting way to mark our upcoming Fifth Anniversary and the rich history of jazz in the Fillmore, than to celebrate the 80th birthday of one of our best native sons, the legendary John Handy. Mark your calendars for this special tribute performance and the opening of a two-month exhibit in our Koret Heritage Lobby. Jazz Historian and JAZZ 91.1/KCSM-FM Sonny Buxton will emcee this special evening with Glen Pearson on keys as bandleaders. Visit our website for ticket information.
ALSO AT THE JAZZ HERITAGE CENTER
Visit our Lush Life Gallery at 1320 Fillmore Street for a stunning exhibit by Ethiopian artists as part of our partnership with the Ethiopian Arts Forum. The closing reception on February 17, 6-9 pm, will feature a performance by jazz pianist Elias Negash and his Quartet. Regular Gallery hours are Wednesday - Sunday, 4-8pm.
