Crisp air, changing leaves, cider donuts, and apple picking: there are few things on Earth better than fall in Western New York. And I'm not just saying that because I'm ready to sustain myself on pumpkin-spice everything and already have a sweet Halloween costume picked out: It's because fall is when our city's amazing arts community kicks off their new seasons.
As sweater weather approaches, here's a preview of what to look forward to in the Rochester world of dance, music, art, theater, food, and film.
Rebecca Rafferty offers a guide to the coming season in art galleries and museums. It's a season with an abundance of exhibits dealing with complicated, contemporary issues.
Daniel Kushner swings through the season of Rochester's dance companies before joining David Raymond to preview the year in classical music.
Because hard cider is delicious, writer Kathy Laluk explores some area cideries, the booming hard cider scene, and what goes into making that wonderful, magical elixir.
Leah Stacy shines a spotlight on what's being staged over the next few months at our area theater companies.
And I'm offering coming attractions for what film treats are in store at your local movie theater.
