Ending the Semester on a High Note

The Department of Music is offering a variety of concerts through the remainder of the semester, many of which feature the Colleges’ own talented students. The first concert will feature a solo performance by Rochester’s funk/jazz guitarist John Viviani. With his band, Filthy Funk, Viviani has performed three times at the Rochester International Jazz Festival, as well as at venues throughout the Rochester area. In profiling festival bands, City Newspaper wrote of Filthy Funk, “This is still primarily am instrumental outfit… guitarist John Viviani’s guitar remains paramount with its effects-laden and way-cool trips to the clouds.” Viviani’s concert will take place on Friday, April 22, at 1 p.m. in the Scandling Campus Center.
