The Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival kicks off June 23rd

Are you ready for Gibb Street to turn into "Jazz Street" for nine days? It's a great time of year – one of our favorite musical festivals. Last year WXXI-TV taped nine Jazz Fest performances at The Rochester Club, and you can watch those performances throughout the month – Saturdays at 4 p.m. on WXXI-TV. Click here for the schedule.

This year our News Team will be on “Jazz Street” covering events and activities throughout the Festival and you can hear reports on AM 1370 and WRUR 88.5 FM. Meanwhile, the Little Theatre will once again serve as an official venue. The Little’s theater 1 will stage two Jazz Festival acts per night, which will include Biel Ballester, The Durham County Poets, and RPO Trumpeter Herb Smith. The Little Café will also be open, serving food and beverages, and hosting free live music performed by local favorites.
