CLASSICAL | Gateways Music Festival 

In association with the Eastman School of Music, the 2017 Gateways Music Festival will begin Tuesday, August 8, and run through Sunday, August 13. More than 120 classical musicians of African descent will be featured in around 50 solo, chamber, and orchestral concerts throughout Rochester. Aside from concerts, the festival will also include a panel discussion by some of the musicians on opening night and a pre-concert conversation (on Saturday, August 12) by Paul Burgett, University of Rochester adjunct professor of music and a leading authority on African-American music.

The Gateways Music Festival is free and open to the public. Performances will take place at various Rochester venues, such as Hochstein School of Music and Dance, Rochester City Hall, Rochester Public Library, and more.
