KIDS | HEP Kids Jazz Celebration 

The Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival is mainly geared toward adult audiences, but Hochstein School of Music & Dance (50 N. Plymouth Ave.) will present a day of fun and music for families with children ages 2-12 on Saturday, June 29. HEP KIDS provides the opportunity to explore jazz music, learn about instruments, create musical crafts, and take in presentations by community partners.

The event includes four half-hour jazz concerts in Hochstein's Performance Hall featuring Mambo Kings' Dick DeLaney, guitarist Craig Snyder, bassist Alfred Stone, vocalist Lisa Salvaggio-Clark, drummer/composer Aaron Staebell, among others. Each musician will play different jazz styles and encourage audience interaction. Also featured will be creative movement sessions, a jazz instrument petting zoo, arts & crafts, and more.

The event takes place 10 a.m.-2 p.m., and costs $2 per child, $5 per adult, and $10 max per family. For more information, call 454-4596 or visit
