O's Pipa and Friends

*Temporarily Closed*

Rochester's film community is truly amazing -- a smart, passionate group who help make this a special place. While we love nothing more than for you to find that next magical film under our Art Deco roof with the largest possible bag of Little Popcorn, or to enjoy live music in our cafe, the safety of our guests and employees is the top priority. As a result, The Little has decided to suspend all film/music programming, and temporarily close to the public until further notice.

We continue to monitor updates and adhere to guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as the state and county, regarding the COVID-19 coronavirus.

If you've purchased tickets in advance, you will be given the following options:
- Full refund
- Tickets will be honored for a later screening
- Conversion of the ticket costs to a tax-deductible donation to the Little Theatre

We look forward to welcoming you back through our doors as soon as we safely can. Thank you for your patience and continued support.

Thank you,
Your Friendly Neighborhood Little Theatre

Her move to Rochester has sparked her interest in bridging the gap between traditional Chinese folk and American music. Her past show includes Opening for Hidden Garden Concert at George Eastman Museum for Ben Morey in 2017, O's Pipa Concert in Rochester Guitar Club in 2018. O's Pipa with Katie Preston in The Little Cafe Music in 2019.

The Pipa: The pipa dates back almost 2000 years, being popular in China since around 618AD.Modern pipa compositions are often characterized by five finger tremolo, note bending into the deep frets, percussive plucking of string and its notably bright sound.
