Gold Koa will play its first show at Rochester Fringe Festival

Indie-pop trio Gold Koa works even while bandmates are on opposite sides of the country. In January, the group released its first single, “Little Lost.” Almost a year later, the group is about to play their first live set as part of the 2018 Rochester Fringe Festival.

CLASSICAL | "Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY"

Few video game franchises are as enduring or iconic as Final Fantasy. The same can be said for the series' musical scores—the first nine of which were solely composed by Nobuo Uematsu (he also contributed to the music in subsequent games from the series).

Classical review: RPO's 2018-19 season opener

Music Director Ward Stare kick-started the 2018-19 Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra season last night, with music by three very familiar composers. But when the program includes a powerhouse soloist, and the musicians acquit themselves so well, that familiarity is very satisfying.

INDIE | Caroline Rose

In the time between 2014's "I Will Not Be Afraid" and "LONER," which came out this year, Caroline Rose went through a transformation. The singer-songwriter has always excelled at crafting whip-smart, energy-packed tunes.
