The High Falls Business Association has once again teamed up with the Hochstein School of Music & Dance and WXXI to present Hochstein at High Falls, a noontime summer concert series. The series includes ten outdoor concerts Thursday afternoons at 12:10 pm during June, July and August. Weather permitting, they will be held in theGranite Mills Park near the Pont de Rennes Bridge and will feature a diverse mix of musical artists and instructors. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating and lunch, or pick up a great lunch at area restaurants (like La Luna and Fina's Cafe). Each performance runs approximately 50 minutes.

Mike D’Aurizio is a blues singer and harmonica player, a local musical legend, known for leading the high-energy band “Big Mike and the Motivators.” Pianist, singer, and songwriter Hanna PK has been making a splash in and around Rochester NY. She’s never attended a music school, but her classroom has been multiple juke joints. There she learned from and played with what people call “The Real Deal” — It was her luck that even though Rochester isn’t exactly in the Delta region, the area’s blues scene is still carried on with authenticity by nationally-recognized bluesmen like Joe Beard and John Cole. In fact, the first time she got a chance to play with Joe Beard was at a festival celebrating Son House, who influenced countless blues greats such as Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters.
