Jazzschool_logoThe CJC, formerly the JAZZSCHOOL, and The San Francisco Early Music Society have established an exciting affiliation that delights both our audience and our local musicians. Early music lovers and jazz music lovers join together to celebrate the improvisational kinship of the two genres. CJC offers a casual and intimate environment where the audience can enjoy a light meal and sip a glass of wine or a cup of coffee while enjoying the concert.

CJC hosts the Sunday afternoon concerts of early music, each concert featuring SFEMS affiliates and members of our local music community performing on period instruments and expounding the common improvisational thread (what philosopher David Rothenberg called “sudden music”) that links early music and jazz.
