Classical 91.5

Summer

The Corn Hill Arts Festival is this coming weekend and it marks a milestone. 

It's the 50th year of the event.

Its humble beginning was August 23, 1969. The neighborhood wasn't even known as Corn Hill back then; it was Rochester's Old Third Ward, once one of the city's wealthiest neighborhoods.

In the summer of 1969, it was the target of Urban Renewal efforts. Nine hundred homes had already been demolished.

As the summer season gets into full gear, Peter DuBois will offer a selection of sacred choral and organ music from across the centuries that ushers in a time of relaxation and calm assurance. Join us for the journey.


Join Classical 91.5's Mona Seghatoleslami at Granite Mills Park in High Falls for Hochstein at High Falls, a free lunchtime concert series, presented by High Falls Business Association, Hochstein School of Music & Dance, WXXI, and Monroe Community College (MCC). Mona welcomes a new band to the park each week. Please note: This is a live concert series, and will not be broadcast on WXXI radio.

Concerts begin at 12:10 pm at the Granite Mills Park near the Pont de Rennes Bridge. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating and lunch, or pick up a lunch at the many area restaurants. Each performance will run approximately 50 minutes. New this year: the rain location is at MCC’s downtown campus and in the event of rain, the change in venue will be announced via social media. Note that the June 14 concert is scheduled to take place at MCC as a special campus event.
