Sanborn Fundraiser a Success


“It’s incredible that a place like this exists, not just in St. Louis, but anywhere.”
-David Sanborn

Thanks to our sponsors, the David Sanborn Concert Event was a great success.  With their help in filling 24 tables—and with both nights sold out—we were able to raise over $30,000 that will go directly to our education and outreach programs, bringing more jazz to more students.  We could not have asked for a better start to our 15th Anniversary Season. Thank you!

Furthermore, it was especially significant for us to welcome back a hometown musician; and all who participated in the event have directly underwritten Jazz St. Louis’ aim to educate and develop the next David Sanborn or Miles Davis.  Again, we thank all of you for helping us realize our mission to lead our community in advancing the uniquely American art of jazz through live performance, education, and outreach.
