What's cool about this evening of jazz: 

  • A night honoring protest songs and music of hope.
  • New music created by students specifically for this performance.
  • This concert is extra special: to invite you into the concert halls, select performances during the fall semester (like this one) are expertly filmed and feature special intermission content, including virtual artist meet-and-greets, composer interviews, and mini master-classes with top faculty.

About RJAM:

The Roots, Jazz, and American Music program at the San Francisco Conservatory of music presents original compositions and arrangements by freshmen all the way to seniors alongside their faculty members. Past performances have included world-renowned jazz greats such as Carmen Bradford, Matt Wilson, Julian Lage, Chad-Lefkowitz-Brown, as well as SFJAZZ Collective members David Sanchez, Warren Wolf, or Edward Simon.

The performance is the culmination of a multiple-day residency, with students working side-by-side with faculty to conceive, workshop, and rehearse their original material and arrangements of jazz standards. The individual pieces will be announced from stage.
