CLASSICAL | Gateways Music Festival 

Pianist and music educator Armenta Adams Hummings founded the Gateways Music Festival in 1993 to give performance and networking opportunities to students and professional musicians of African descent. Gateways' home every other year since 1995 has been Rochester; the Eastman School of Music hosts the festival's final concert, and throughout the course of the event about 85 fine young musicians take part in chamber-music concerts and recitals all across town — see the Gateway Festival website for times and places. They'll join together for an orchestral concert on Sunday, August 18, in Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre. At that show Gateways Festival music director, the distinguished conductor Michael Morgan, will lead the musicians through Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 and William Levi Dawson's Negro Folk Symphony, a rediscovery from the "Great American Symphony" years of the 1930's, this time by a black composer.

Gateways Music Festival takes place Thursday, August 15, through Sunday, August 18, at various locations in downtown Rochester. For more information visit gatewaysmusicfestival.org.
