Classical 91.5 is a proud media sponsor of the upcoming Gateways Music Festival, Aug 6-11, 2019

Very soon the Gateways Music Festival(August 6-11) in Association with the Eastman School of Music, will be returning to Rochester, for the largest festival in its history. 

The Gateways Music Festival is unique among music festivals, because it attracts and unites professional classical musicians of African descent, and provides them an opportunity to come together, to perform and inspire communities, through the excellence and power of classical music.  In the past 8 years, the festival has grown from a 3-day festival with approximately 50 musicians, to a 6-day festival including over 125 musicians and over 50 performances, along with a young musicians institute and a film-festival this year.

Classical 91.5's host Kearstin Brown, a member of the GMF Board of Directors, appeared on WROC Channel 8 on Tuesday to talk about the festival.
