SFJAZZ Center Opening
The new SFJAZZ Center opened this week to rave reviews with all-star performances and celebrity appearances, including Bill Cosby. Hailed as the first stand-alone hall in the west exclusively for jazz performance and education, the venue features a 700-seat auditorium with a state of the art sound system. The center, located in the Hayes Valley neighborhood in the heart of the city's arts corridor, will draw big name acts as well as support local musicians and school groups.
