Brass Bows & Beats!

This year marks the 10-year anniversary of the Jazz Mafia’s most ambitious work to date, the SFJAZZ-commissioned Brass, Bows & Beats: A Hip-Hop Symphony. Premiered to the sold-out Palace of Fine Arts Theatre at the San Francisco Jazz Festival, BB&B became a sensation on the North American jazz festival circuit with the entire 50-piece Jazz Mafia Symphony playing Newport, Montreal, Monterey, San Jose, and Stern Grove. For the first time in eight years, the full Jazz Mafia Symphony reunites on one stage, performing reimagined selections of Brass, Bows & Beats, as well as the world premieres of several new works that feature surprise special guests.

Every dollar raised will make it possible for us to continue to be the creative home for youth, artists and other change makers who move us to think, to feel, to question, and to act.

Let’s raise a ruckus, raise the roof, and raise some money.
