The Gala includes a pre-concert cocktail reception (6pm), the concert (7pm), and post-concert dinner (8pm). Proceeds benefit SF Performances’ education programs.Tickets start at $500.

The concert brings SF Performances Artist-in-Residence, trumpeter Sean Jones, violinist Regina Carter, narrator Nicholas Phan, and friends for a jazz-inflected performance of L’Histoire du Soldat (The Soldier’s Tale), plus an all-star set of jazz favorites.

Stravinsky’s hybrid theatrical work created on the eve of Europe’s Jazz Age, was first performed on this same date in 1918. Based on a Russian folktale about the choice between greed and happiness, L’Histoire features seven instruments and a narrator that tell the story of an AWOL soldier’s encounter with the devil.
