Each program will feature poets and jazz performers, beginning on March 3 with San Francisco Poet Laureate Alejandro Murguía with jazz accompaniment by The Voice of the Mission. Other programs will feature poets Neeli Cherkovski, Vincent Kobelt, Royal Kent and more, along with musicians such as the wordWind Chorus, The All-Star Revue, and the Nova Jazz Band.
