About SFJAZZ Collective
Founded by SFJAZZ in 2004, the SFJAZZ Collective is a leaderless group and a democratic composer’s workshop that represents what’s happening now in jazz. The Collective’s mission is to perform fresh arrangements of works by a modern master and newly commissioned pieces by each member. Through this pioneering approach, simultaneously honoring music’s greatest figures while championing jazz’s up-to-the-minute directions, the SFJAZZ Collective embodies SFJAZZ’s commitment to jazz as a living, ever-relevant art form.
Over their fifteen-year existence, the SFJAZZ Collective has honored the music of John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Herbie Hancock, Thelonious Monk, Wayne Shorter, McCoy Tyner, Horace Silver, Stevie Wonder, Chick Corea, Joe Henderson, Michael Jackson, Miles Davis, António Carlos Jobim and Sly Stone, and has created over 100 new arrangements and original compositions.
SFJAZZ Collective’s latest project will focus on new compositions by the band, inspired by and in response to the extraordinary social and global issues we have faced over the last year.
The Dr. Phillips Center is proud to present this show in our Freedom Series, supported by TD Bank–celebrating African American artists and showcasing diverse performing arts.

About Shrek the Musical
Based on the Dreamworks film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony award-winning hilarious adventure that brings the beloved characters from the film to the stage. Follow the grumpy green ogre named Shrek as his hermit existence is thrown into chaos when a group of storybook favorites – Pinocchio, the Gingerbread Man, the Three Little Pigs and more – invade his swamp, Shrek agrees to save the lovely Princess Fiona – who has been waiting for her prince to rescue her – for Farquaad. With the help of his loyal sidekick, a talking donkey, Shrek learns that he’s not the only one that feels like a misfit and finds out what true love really means. Amidst dazzling puppetry, high-energy dance numbers, side-sticking jokes and over-the-top characters, Shrek The Musical turns the traditional fairy tale upside-down.
