Welcome from the Philharmonia's Assistant Director

Welcome to the Hochstein Philharmonia! This orchestra is the first full orchestral (winds/brass/strings/percussion) experience students receive at Hochstein. We will be working on advanced repertoire while refining the basics of solid orchestral technique. Throughout the year, we will also be working on our musicianship, conducting, improvising, and composing. 

This website is a resource for Philharmonia students to check in with their directors, discover music both new and old, and find information about other Hochstein orchestras. Please explore and become familiar with the different areas of the site using the navigation provided. I'm looking forward to working with you all!
