The Clarissa Street Reunion celebrates a neighborhood known for producing renowned jazz musicians in the 1940's, 1950's, and 1960's. Clarissa Street, which is located in the southwest quadrant of Rochester and in the old 3rd Ward, brought together people of Black, Italian, Irish, and Jewish descent. The annual reunion began in 1996.
