Mission Statement

The mission of the David Hochstein Memorial Music School is to provide people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities
with access to excellent music and dance education in a community that nurtures and encourages personal achievement.


 
 

 

Music matters. Making music matters more.

The Hochstein School, founded in commemoration of genius and dedicated to providing access to opportunity, is a vibrant community of musicians, dancers, and supporters who choose to come together in this historic and inspiring place to develop in themselves, and in each other, the ability to speak and communicate through the making of music and dance. We do this with the conviction that music nurtures, enriches, and energizes every human life, and that the joy of making music, and all the expressive arts that it inspires, holds the key to creating a better world.

CALENDAR OF EVENTS
Hochstein at High Falls: Hanna & the Blue Hearts
Event summary
Join us for a free lunchtime concert in High Falls, featuring Hanna & the Blue Hearts.
Event details

Location: Granite Mills Park near the Pont de Rennes Bridge, 104 Platt Street, Rochester. Click here for a map.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating and lunch, or pick up a lunch at one of the many area restaurants. New this year: the rain location is at MCC’s downtown campus and in the event of rain, the change in venue will be announced via social media.

Hanna and the Blue Hearts channel a wide variety of the blues, from pre-war styles to ‘50s and ‘60s Chicago blues to boogie-woogie, as well as influences from jazz and swing. People often use the expression ‘tickling the ivories,’ but if you see the way Hanna plays, it’s anything but tickling. Her solid left hand reflects on those traditional blues masters’ rocking and shuffling bass patterns, while her right hand grooves along, dancing all over those 88s, and also adding her sultry voice. She is joined by guitarist Aleks Disljenkovic, organist Gian Carlo Cervone, and drummer Tony Hiler. http://hearhanna.com/blue_hearts.shtml
