Countdown to the Festival! Venue Update

May 4, 2023


Rochester, NY, May 4, 2023—The CGI Rochester International Jazz Festival announced today an update on a Club Pass Venue. The Club Pass Global Jazz Now series, formerly held at Glory House International, is moving to Christ Church, a long-time favorite festival venue in the heart of our footprint on East Avenue. Christ Church will provide for greater seating capacity and has undergone extensive renovations since the Festival was last there in 2019,

"We have enjoyed working with Glory House International and the Lutheran Church over the years, and we hope to have the opportunity to work with them again in the future," said CGI Rochester International Jazz Festival Executive Director and co-producer Marc Iacona.

This year's app has more features than ever before, making it an easy way to plan your festival experience!

Please note we will not be printing a program guide this year for several reasons, including rising printing costs, environmental concerns, the inability to provide the most up-to-date information since the guide was printed weeks before the festival, and the significant growth in popularity and use of the app. So please download the app!

We will be printing our handy pocket brochure, which will be available in the Ticket Shop in June!
