The fourth annual "If Music Be Food" concert series benefitting Rochester Foodlink was held Sunday afternoon.

The concert series this year celebrated the birthday of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

The concert featured members from the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, Eastman School of Music Students, local and international professional musicians.

The concert aimed to raise awareness for those who go hungry in the community.

"It's great music, it's a combination also of my Eastman colleagues, sometimes members of the RPO, we've had out of town guest artists," said Professor Carol Rodland. "Then with some of our really talented, high level students collaborating with them, teaching them about service and being involved in the community and helping. And they also get the chance then to play along side their mentors."

Foodlink is a non-profit food bank that serves nearly 90,000 meals every week in the 10 county area.

That includes the Finger Lakes and Genesee Valley region.
