Rochester International Jazz Festival

By Rebekah:

Jazz_festival_logo The 7th edition of the Rochester International Jazz Festival came to town starting this past weekend.  From June 13th – 21st, a variety of local and national talent will be featured throughout the downtown corridor.  The artist lineup includes: Al Green, Frank Sinatra Jr. & his orchestra, Boz Scaggs, Rochester Jazz @ The Philharmonic, Dee Dee Bridgewater with special guest the Richard Bona Band, and many more.  Tickets are still on sale for many of the artists, and there are even a few free concerts sponsored by the Rochester Community Foundation and M&T Bank. 

Although most Simon students are not in Rochester this summer – they  have either graduated or are away on internship – we have a variety of fun activities available for those who decide to stick around and take summer classes before the 2nd year of their MBA.  If you are arriving to start graduate study this summer, you may want to check this out further.  Visit the Rochester International Jazz Festival Web site at http://www.rochesterjazz.com/ for information on the schedule of events, venue maps, ticket information, or to sign up as a volunteer.
