Hochstein at High Falls: Zahyia
Event summary
Join us for a free lunchtime concert at Hochstein at High Falls, featuring Zahyia.
Event details

Location: Granite Mills Park near the Pont de Rennes Bridge, 104 Platt Street, Rochester. Click here for a map. 

The concerts are hosted by WXXI Classical’s Mona Seghatoleslami. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating and lunch. Each performance will run approximately 40 minutes. 

A songwriter, lyricist, producer, and creative visionary, Zahyia has dedicated her life to existing in spaces that elevate and change the limited narratives, images, and awareness of what it means to exist as a Black American Woman. With her eclectic background of jazz, hip-hop, R&B, lo-fi hip-hop, music theater, funk, and soul, Zahyia finds ways to push traditional boundaries in the world of music and alternative R&B. She will be joined by her five-piece band. www.zahyia.com

As an organization that deeply values diversity, The Hochstein School stands in solidarity with all marginalized communities who are targeted with microaggressions of hate and with violence. We denounce any injustices perpetrated towards them. We are committed to speaking out against all forms of racism and bigotry and will continue our work in bringing unity and inclusiveness to all - at Hochstein and throughout our community.



The Hochstein School, founded in commemoration of genius and dedicated to providing access to opportunity, is a vibrant community of musicians, dancers, and supporters who choose to come together in this historic and inspiring place to develop in themselves, and in each other, the ability to speak and communicate through the making of music and dance. We do this with the conviction that music nurtures, enriches, and energizes every human life, and that the joy of making music, and all the expressive arts that it inspires, holds the key to creating a better world.
