Classical 91.5

Keeping track of the world of online concerts and events (and submit your events!)

Mar 27, 2020

There have been so many creative responses to keeping people connected to arts and music while we are remaining physically separated. In fact, it's even getting a little difficult to keep track of all the amazing concerts and events happening now online. Here are a few things for you to bookmark to stay connected with online music, arts, and community events. 

Our friends at CITY Newspaper are now including online events in their Events Calendar. It's a great place to find online performances by your favorite local musicians of all genres, as well as virtual art exhibits, online discussions and classes, and more. Check out the CITY Events Calendar. And be sure to submit your online events from the Rochester area and the Finger Lakes region by emailing the calendar editor

The WXXI Classical 91.5 Arts Calendar is now being updated as best we can with classical concerts and selected other events online, from Rochester and from classical musicians around the world. Organizing an online classical concert? Submit your listing online or send the station an email.

Keep in touch with local arts coverage from WXXI News, including columns from Jeff Spevak, on WXXI's Arts & Life Page. You can also check CITY's Choice Events and find more in their Music and Arts & Entertainment sections.

The Virtual Little Theatre is now open, with several movies now available to watch and more added every few days. Check out what's screening now.

And there's always music on WXXI Classical 91.5, including regular concerts on the radio. You can find out more through our online program schedule, including RPO concerts on the radio on Monday nights
