Rochester, N.Y. - George Eastman House will host Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play and Cello Fury on September 21 as part of the First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival. Screen Plays ~ Hollywood's Golden Age on Stage will perform Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play at 1 p.m. and Cello Fury will hit the stage at 3 p.m. Both performances will be held in the Dryden Theatre, 900 East Avenue. Admission to each event is $10, and tickets can be ordered in advance at www.rochesterfringe.com.

Written by Joe Landry, Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play is based on two early films by Alfred Hitchcock-The Lodger and Sabotage. This production is staged as a broadcast from Rochester's local radio station using vintage equipment from the AWA Wireless Museum. In addition, the production will feature live musical accompaniment by members of The Colored Musicians Club of Buffalo, which for more than 75 years has been bringing classical jazz music to Western New York.

Cello Fury, a cello rock powerhouse featuring three cellists and a drummer, combine the emotive and symphonic sounds of the cello with driving rock beats to create a cinematic, progressive rock sound. A rarity in the music world, Cello Fury appeals to a diverse audience throughout the United States and abroad.

Continually developing their own unique style of cello rock music, cellists Simon Cummings, Ben Muñoz and Nicole Myers along with drummer David Throckmorton unleash vitality and rhythmic drive in their music and dare to venture past classical expectations. They have released two albums of original music, "Cello Fury" and "Symphony of Shadows" and performs over a hundred live shows each year.For more information, visit cellofury.com
