"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."

Event details

In music, we explore various possibilities: we blend strings and winds, sticks and hammers, fuse tranquility with chaos, jest with seriousness, and walk through old and new, then and now. At Hochstein, we work together and perform all kinds of music, be it classical, jazz, folk song, or newly created music by living composers.

This concert features diverse styles of chamber music pieces by four composers. The program includes the classical/jazz musician Claude Bolling’s swinging and playful Jazz Suites, Jewish klezmer music introduced in Shostakovich’s Piano Trio No. 2 finale, Arvo Pärt’s serene and solemn Mozart-Adagio for Piano Trio, and Alfred Schnittke’s quirky and boisterous Gogol Suite for Two Pianos.   

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.

Thank you to Wegmans Food Markets for their support of our community events.
