On May 6, 2011 SFJAZZ broke ground on the construction of the SFJazz Center, a $60 million project that will become the San Francisco presenter’s new home. The 35,000 square foot building designed by local architect Mark Cavagnero, will house a concert hall with flexible seating for 350-500 people, a jazz cafe, and a state-of -the-art home for the SFJAZZ Collective, an all-star jazz ensemble comprised of some of the finest musicians performing today. Collective members vibraphonist Stefon Harris, trombonist Robin Eubanks, trumpeter Avishai Cohen, bassist Matt Penman and former SFJAZZ artistic director Joshua Redman attended the event. The SFJAZZ Center is scheduled to open in the Fall 2012.
