New Works Fest 2024

Feb 16–Mar 2, 2024, SJZ's New Works Fest premiered works commissioned by the 2024 Jazz Aid Fund grants program by some of the Bay Area’s best musicians. The 2024 artists were Chika Di, Dahveed Behroozi, Hristo Vitchev, Sundra Manning, Marcus Shelby and Ayo Brame.

.The Jazz Aid Fund was conceived by the SJZ’s Board of Directors in direct response to the Coronavirus Pandemic, which devastated the livelihoods of local artists. Since 2021 we have provided 100 Bay Area musicians with $130,000 in grants and performance fees. Learn more
