Rochester Native and Internationally Touring Artist Danielle Ponder Returns to the Lilac Fest

The May 16th Show Marks the 10th Anniversary Since Ponder’s First Appearance

Join Rochester native and internationally touring artist Danielle Ponder at the Rochester Lilac Fest. This free concert takes place Thursday, May 16th at 7:00 p.m on the main stage and marks the 10th anniversary since her very first appearance at the nationally recognized festival. 

And with the help of the Avenue BlackBox Theatre, Ponder will also be donating a portion of the proceeds to local emerging artists, many of whom are in a similar spot she was in just a decade ago: 

“I’ve been so fortunate to travel and sing in so many places but I remember my first Lilac performance and how much that opportunity meant to me,” said Ponder. “I am excited to perform at the Lilac Fest and use this moment to spotlight some of our local artists, who will join me as opening acts. It’s a great way to introduce our community to artists who I hope will receive the same love and support that I have received from Rochester over the years."   

Ponder selected artists Chi the Realist and Natalia Ekua and the event will be hosted by local comedian Yolanda Smilez. 

Since Ponder’s first Lilac Fest appearance, she has toured internationally and performed at major music festivals across the nation. Her appearance is one of the most anticipated events of the upcoming Lilac Fest. Press are encouraged to reach out ahead of the concert for exclusive interviews and preview coverage.
