Rochester Broadway Theatre League Presents Virtual Masterclasses With Kara Lindsay, Nikki Renee Daniels & More

While it is no secret that the on-going pandemic has thrown a wrench in almost every single industry, the arts have had to prove to be especially creative and resilient. As most live performance venues have remained closed, the Rochester Broadway Theatre League (RBTL), like so many venues in Rochester and across the country, have embraced the opportunity of presenting virtual entertainment and virtual education in multiple forms, such as live streamed concerts and Zoom Master Classes with Broadway professionals. In addition to presenting virtual entertainment, RBTL has opened its doors to local arts organization including STAGES and, most recently, the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. RBTL began working with STAGES over the summer to provide additional space for their students, and they plan to continue to offer programs to their students by utilizing the extra space at the Auditorium. Recently, RBTL hosted the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra by providing rehearsal and performance space for their upcoming virtual series, RPO at Home.

"Since our doors closed in March, we've been embracing every opportunity that comes our way for us to continue to provide entertainment to our patrons and support to our friends and colleagues in the Rochester arts community," says Linda Glosser, Executive Vice President for RBTL. "Of course, we all believe that nothing beats live arts and entertainment experiences. We are eager to return to that. Until then, we're grateful to our patrons and arts partners for being flexible with us and embracing this 'new' form of entertainment."
