SFJAZZ Announces New Home



SFJAZZ announced last week it has plans to build its first permanent home and the West Coast’s first facility dedicated to jazz music and education. The 35,000-square-foot center will be built in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley, thanks to an anonymous $20 million donation. (The organization plans to raise another $60 million.) It will include a 700-seat auditorium, rehearsal studios, a black-box theater, digital lab, and restaurant/cafe. Groundbreaking is scheduled for summer 2011.
