rochester international jazz festival tickets on sale

Club Passes for the 11th annual Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival go on sale Friday. October 28, with a new ticketing system.

Festival co-producer John Nugent says the festival also will have a new venue, the Hatch Recital Hall in the renovated east wing of Eastman School of Music, which will feature an acoustic series.

This year's fest is from June 22 through 30, one week later than in the past.

Eliminating Ticketmaster in favor of being in charge of its own e-ticketing will help lower the service fees for the Eastman Theatre.
