We're baaaack!!! ... CGI Rochester International Jazz Festival returns to downtown ROC

In a press release today, CGI Rochester International Jazz Festival producers John Nugent and Marc Iacona confirmed that planning is well underway for the Festival’s long-awaited return to downtown Rochester June 17th to 25th next year.

Pimage from www.jazzrochester.comroducer and Artistic Director. “It has been a stressful two years of scheduling, postponing, rescheduling and postponing again, and again. Finally, though, on June 17, 2022, our much-anticipated 19th Edition will open!” The full lineup and complete Festival details will be announced at the annual spring press conference on Tuesday, March 15, 2022.

Booking is well underway for the 2022 Club Pass Series, giving the right of first refusal as promised to artists originally booked for the 19th Edition. The 2022 Club Pass Series will feature 219 sets of music at 12 venues in downtown Rochester including the Bethel Church (new this year), Hatch Hall, Hyatt Regency Ballroom (new this year), Kilbourn Hall, Little Theatre, Lutheran Church of the Reformation, Max of Eastman Place, Montage Music Hall, Temple Theater, Theater at Innovation Square (formerly Xerox Auditorium and newly renovated), Rochester Regional Health Big Tent, and the Wilder Room.

Patrons who hold club pass series tickets for the pandemic postponed 19th Edition, do not need to do anything. Their tickets are automatically valid for the 2022 festival or 2023 festival if they are unable to attend in 2022. As in prior years, Club Pass Tickets may be redeemed for passes at the Ticket Shop. Hours and dates for the shop will be announced closer to the festival.

Almost 100% of Club Pass patrons held onto their tickets for the 2022 festival, so in order to not overtax Club Pass venue capacities, the Festival will not put Club Passes on sale until spring 2022. Quantities will be limited.
