Thousands Pack The Start Of The Jazz Fest


Diana Krall playing Friday at the XRIJF.

More than 1500 artists will be playing jazz, and just about every other form of music over the next week or so, in an event that usually attracts a total of about 200,000 people.

The streets around the East End, especially East Ave. saw their share of 'buskers,' with a guitarist, and accordionist and a few other street musicians adding to the ambience of what has become one of Rochester's most popular festivals.  

The nine-day festival features more than 320 shows including more than 90-free concerts and over 1500 artists. There are some new venues this year, including the Squeezers Roots and American Stage at the Sibley Building, and the theater at 440 East Avenue in the First Church of Christ, Scientist. And because of construction on the Inner Loop, the concerts previously held at the stage at East and Alexander are being moved to East and Chestnut.

You can get updates throughout the festival on-air on WXXI, and online at wxxi.organd
