"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

Drawing on the theme of nature, the forest, and winter melting into spring, Cordancia performs Deep Forest by American composer Mabel Daniels, who was inspired by the woods at the MacDowell Colony artist retreat in New Hampshire, and “Winter” and “Spring” from Las Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas (The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires) by Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla, with violin soloist Sophia Klin.

The program concludes with selections from Ravel’s Mother Goose Suite. Each of the five movements illustrate fairy tales, including Tom Thumb who leaves a trail of breadcrumbs to find his way back in the forest and one that depicts a fairy garden.

Formed in 2009 by violinist Pia Liptak and oboist Kathleen Suher, Cordancia Chamber Orchestra performs classical music concerts throughout the year at various locations in the greater Rochester area. Its award-winning programming blends eclectic, vibrant, and lesser-known music with traditional classical repertoire. The full chamber orchestra consists of up to 40 talented performers who are brought together from many areas of the Rochester community. 

Winner of the senior division of Cordancia’s Nico Toscano Young Musician Competition, guest soloist Sophia Klin is a 2023 graduate of the Eastman School of Music. She performs as a violinist around the region with ensembles such as the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, Binghamton Philharmonic Orchestra, Symphoria, and more.
