Foundations of Jazz: From Old School to the New and Now

Matinees take place the 2nd Saturday of the month at 11am in Miner Auditorium.
Free to Matinee ticket-holders, Family Workshops begin at 12:10pm in Joe Henderson Lab immediately following each Matinee.

Both fun and educational, Family Matinees provide a window into the exciting world of live jazz. Each one-hour matinee features live performance, audience participation, Q&A and amazing music. New for SFJAZZ Education, we are thrilled to kick off our opening season with the one and only Lemony Snicket, who will dazzle and delight families with his wacky and wonderful take on jazz in our first two matinees. Also, we are pleased to offer an interactive experience following each matinee performance with our Family Workshops. Although designed for elementary school students, our Family Matinees and Workshops are open to music fans of all ages. In our opening season at the SFJAZZ Center we are thrilled to offer five distinct matinee programs and workshops, each lead by some of the most creative artists and educators in the Bay Area. Enjoyed individually or as a series, these Family Matinees and Workshops will change the way you hear jazz and get families playing together.
