Hochstein at High Falls: Zahyia

Hochstein at High Falls: Zahyia

Thu, 08/03/2023 - 12:10pm - 1:00pm

Zahyia continues to push the boundaries on what it means to be a Black American Woman through her diverse musical experience in a wide range of genres (hip-hop to music theater).

The Hochstein at High Falls lunchtime summer concert series returns to the city’s High Falls District with the sounds of local music every Thursday, June 8 through August 17. Zahyia performs on Thursday, August 3, 2023 at 12:10 p.m. at our new location - 4 Commercial Street, corner of Browns Race.

The concerts are hosted by WRUR Station Manager Ryan Yarmel. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating and lunch. Each performance will run approximately 40 minutes. 

A songwriter, lyricist, producer, and creative visionary, Zahyia has dedicated her life to existing in spaces that elevate and change the limited narratives, images, and awareness of what it means to exist as a Black American Woman. With her eclectic background of jazz, hip-hop, R&B, lo-fi hip-hop, music theater, funk, and soul, Zahyia finds ways to push traditional boundaries in the world of music and alternative R&B. She will be joined by her six-piece band with Devonte Oliver on drums, Luis Carrion on bass, Melvin Solder Jr. on keyboards, Greg Meisenzahl on guitar, Orlando Vega on percussion, and Quinn Lawrence on saxophone. www.zahyia.com
