Fall Guide 2015

In City’s annual Fall Guide, our arts critics give their recommendations for the 2015-16 season — their picks for can’t-miss art exhibits, theater productions, dance performances, music concerts, and films.

Rare music, rarer musicians

If the 2015-16 concert season in Rochester is about one thing, it's audience engagement. And as a result, local concertgoers will have ample opportunity to experience music and guest performers it rarely hears.

Flickers of the fall

It was a long time coming, but summer is over. I'm sad to see it go, but I can't help but be excited for fall: changing leaves, crisp air, pumpkin-flavored everything, and some the very best movies the year has to offer.

Smashing pumpkins

Grossmans explains the art of punkin chunkin For a moment, it's just a blip in the sky — an orange sphere that's very much out of place.
