Hochstein Ensembles Faculty

Hochstein's ensemble program draws from a rich history that started with the original Hochstein String Quartet in the 1920s and has grown into the comprehensive program in existence today. Hochstein's ensemble program includes student orchestras, wind symphonies/bands, vocal ensembles, jazz combos, rock bands, a myriad of chamber and instrument-specific ensembles, as well as Junior and Senior dance ensembles.
