SFJAZZ Fridays At Five
Friday, May 22, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:00 pm on Friday, repeating until Friday, February 26, 2021
The coronavirus separates us, threatening the fabric of the community – but music connects, which is why we’ve launched Fridays at Five. It’s what we need right now: a new series of weekly pre-recorded concerts that aspire to connect you – to music, to musicians, to the warm and unique feeling of experiencing live music at the SFJAZZ Center.
For just $5 a month, you can sign up for our new digital membership and tune in each Friday at 5 PM (PDT) / 8 PM (EDT) for the latest concert. Make it a regular date. Bring a glass of wine and cozy up – we think you will discover that digital technology can reveal new dimensions of musical performance. Fridays at Five is not your typical video concert series; it is designed to take you inside the music.
For nearly four decades – and especially since the opening of the SFJAZZ Center in 2013 – this organization has worked to honor the ever-changing jazz tradition and to build a community around this unparalleled American art form. And the coronavirus, ironically, has served as a call to action: our hall may be dark right now, but the music is alive, and we intend it to remain so. Fridays at Five is our starting point, responding to the virus in a very “jazz” way – building on decades of hard work at SFJAZZ, while improvising our way to a digital future. The music will outlive the virus.
FRIDAYS AT FIVE
Streaming every Friday at 5 PM PT (8 PM ET), this online concert series features hour-long broadcasts of exclusive SFJAZZ Center performances culled from our archive. Each event features real-time chats with artists and your fellow SFJAZZ Members. Free to SFJAZZ Members.
