Photos from the 2018 Gala:

Special thanks to our guests and supporters of Hochstein's 2018 Spring Gala. Together we raised almost $100,000 (net) in support of our need-based scholarship program!

Save the Date!

Our 2019 Spring Gala will be held on Saturday, April 27th at the Monroe Golf Club!

Hochstein has served people of all ages, musical abilities, and means since our founding in 1920. This event showcases Hochstein's ongoing commitment to making need-based scholarships available to those in the Greater Rochester area. 


Opening a Window…  

One warm spring afternoon sometime around 1906, Rochester arts patron Emily Sibley Watson heard a young David Hochstein practicing violin through an open window at her neighbor’s home. She became his benefactor, ensuring that he received the finest training available. This is the genesis of what would later become the Hochstein School of Music & Dance as we know it – providing people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities with access to excellent music and dance education in a community that nurtures and encourages personal achievement.
