The Little Cafe is dedicated to connecting Rochester with a wide variety of free musical performances. Located behind theatres 2-5, the cafe hosts a rotating line-up of musical acts on site as well as supporting local artist via streaming performances on Facebook. See below for information on upcoming artsits. For more music, check out our Little Concert Series, held in our historic theatre on East Ave.

Music at the Little Cafe is made possible by a grant from Drs. Dawn and Jacques Lipson to support performance, innovation and accessibility of the arts in the Rochester community and through the support from the New York State Council of the Arts (NYSCA), along with support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legistlature.
