"Hochstein is a hub of Rochester. By bringing together people from all walks of life, and with economic and cultural differences in a nurturing, open and non-judgmental way, we focus on our shared humanity, rather than on our differences."

Spotlight on Faculty – Trios Old & New

08 Nov, 2019 7:00 PM — 08 Nov, 2019 8:00 PM    50 North Plymouth Avenue Rochester New York United States
Event summary
Featuring Margaret Quackenbush, clarinet; Kathleen Murphy Kemp, cello; and Doleen Hood, piano, performing works by David Hochstein, Louise Farrenc, and Rick Sowash.
Event details

The program includes two short works written by David Hochstein, an acclaimed Rochester violinist who inspired the creation of The Hochstein School in 1920 – his Ballad and Menuet (In Olden Style). 

The concert also includes Trio in E-flat Major by 19th-century French composer and pianist Louise Farrenc – one of the first female instrumental professors in Europe with a post at the Paris Conservatory – and Trio No. 3, “November Shadows,” by contemporary American composer Rick Sowash. 

Since 1991, Spotlight on Faculty has highlighted the prestigious Hochstein faculty in a variety of ensembles and musical genres from chamber music and dance to jazz, contemporary, and classical. A key feature of the Spotlight on Faculty concerts is that Hochstein faculty members work together to create their own program and submit proposals to perform on the series.

Each concert begins at 7:00 pm, lasts about an hour, and is followed by a “meet the artists” reception.

Admission is $10 per person, with a $20 family maximum. Concerts are free to Hochstein students/families, faculty, and staff.

The Spotlight on Faculty concert series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
