A Great Night Out In Rochester!

By: Jackie

As you have seen us write in blogs before, we are very lucky in Rochester to be surrounded by such a great artistic, cultural, and musical community.  Even though Rochester is a mid-sized city, there is always something great to do and a real variety to choose from…

On Valentine's Day, I had the pleasure of attending the Valentine's Weekend Concert given by the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra at the Eastman Theatre (proudly a part of the University of Rochester!) which included selections from Romeo & Juliet and Carmen (very fitting for this occasion) as well as a concert by the Grammy award winning, Los Angeles Guitar Quartet.  It was a great night out! 

I think that now I have gotten "hooked" on the RPO and I am already going back this weekend to attend "That's Amore!" where acclaimed tenor Tonio DiPaolo will sing popular songs from Italian composers and favorite opera arias will be performed! In addition to that, I am going to go see a Broadway musical tonight, Jersey Boys presented by the Rochester Broadway Theatre League, which will be at the Auditorium Theatre— there really is never a shortage of things to do and ways to get out and enjoy this great city!

Another great thing to note, is that University of Rochester students regularly have reduced ticket prices available to them– this is surely one of the great things to take advantage of as a student here!
