Join us for an afternoon of relaxing Jazz and Good Company

We hope you will join us for this year’s concert, featuring the dynamic SFJazz Collective, “…an all-star ensemble comprising eight of the finest performers/composers at work in jazz today.” They will present new arrangements of music by the genius jazz innovator Miles Davis.

This benefit concert presented by The San Francisco Chapter of The Links, Incorporated, will continue SF Links’ tradition of promoting Jazz as an American art form, a healing force and experience for wellness. This intergenerational event creates a unique opportunity for our families, friends and community, as jazz music in all its dimensions is a holistic way to communicate and relate with one another; speaking to our hearts and our souls.

One of the highlights of this year’s event will be the presentation of the “2017 SFLinksConnect Awards” to Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, Founder of the Center for Youth Wellness (CYW) and pioneer in the field of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs); Alicia Garza, co-founder of Black Lives Matter; and the 3.9 Art Collective of San Francisco, an association of African American artists, curators, and art writers committed to creative expression, and the ideals and narratives of a diverse San Francisco.  The San Francisco Links are proud to celebrate the accomplishments of these exemplary Honorees.
