The Gateways Music Festival is an amazing collaboration of African American classical musicians from all over the country. The musicians bring their talent, diversity, and graciousness to Rochester New York bi-annually. The performances are breathtaking and truly highlight these musicians and their craft. Since all of the performances are free, this incredible music is accessible in ways that it often is not. At the end of the festival, it was hard to say goodbye and sad that the next incredible collaboration is 2 years away.

The Gateways Music Festival has been a tremendous asset to the Rochester, NY community but the effects have been far reaching. I started as an attendee to one of the concerts several years ago and was thrilled with the caliber of the musicians, the depth of the music that was presented and became hooked!!! The next series of concerts, I became involved to further the mission of the festival. I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the working to pull together classically trained musicians from across the USA to present and perform music of the highest quality to the Rochester community.

One of the most relevant and successful efforts in the nation to increase the presence and knowledge of the contributions of classical musicians of African descent. The bi-annual concert season is a "must hear." The Gateways Music Festival has a powerful affect on musicians and audiences, alike.
