Homestage: Keeping Live Music Alive

You can't go to concerts because the normal music venues are closed. You have to stay home, as do the artists. So instead, they'll play from their homes so you can enjoy a show in yours. Welcome to HomeStage.

HomeStage: Anonymous Willpower

Anonymous Willpower can be described as New Orleans punk or alternative blues. No matter how they're described, we think you'll enjoy their HomeStage performance!

Taurus Savant is a singer-songwriter and producer who has a way with words and melody. He's also an advocate for the arts in Rochester. And all this, is just a small sample of his talents.

On this HomeStage, Taurus sings a song he wrote and produced titled "Hit the Ground."


HomeStage: Hanna PK

The fact that Hanna PK is in Rochester shows the breadth of musical talent here. While known for blues, she's a singer-songwriter in a variety of genres.
