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. 

The eight-member Womba Africa came to the U.S. from Ghana in hopes of competing on “America’s Got Talent” and ended up in Rochester. They have been drumming and dancing, singing, and playing in venues around town – or you might see them playing at the beach or in a park. Their joyful, exuberant music and dance draws an enthusiastic following. The group was founded by Fredrick Quaye Odai with a vision of promoting West African music and culture. The members are part of the Ga Adangbe People in greater Accra, Ghana, a tribe with a very rich and distinct history and culture. https://www.wombadrumming.com/

In the event of inclement weather, check Hochstein’s Facebook page at 10:30 am to see if the concert is moving to the rain location nearby. 

Hochstein at High Falls concerts are presented by High Falls Business Association, The Hochstein School, and WXXI.

Hochstein at High Falls concerts are made possible by a number of local organizations, including Brandtatorship, LaBella Associates, La Luna High Falls, LMT Technology Solutions, MillRace Design, Stantec, and The Zoghlin Group. (Sponsor list as of May 5, 2022)
