Hochstein at High Falls

This noontime, lunch hour summer concert series features the sounds of local musicians in the city’s High Falls District. Hochstein at High Falls concerts begin at 12:10 pm on Thursday afternoons in the outer parking lot at 4 Commercial Street, corner of Browns RaceClick here for a map.

Please note that this is a new location for this summer, due to pending construction on the Pont de Rennes.

The concerts are hosted by WXXI Classical’s Mona Seghatoleslami and WRUR Station Manager Ryan Yarmel. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating and lunch. Each performance will run approximately 40 minutes.

The new look for this year’s Hochstein at High Falls concerts was designed by Brandtatorship.

NEW! The concert rain location is on the Monroe Community College campus at 321 State Street, just a few blocks away. There will be signage and people to direct you to the concert location within the building.

In the event of inclement weather, check this page for the concert status or visit Hochstein’s Facebook page at 10:30 am the day of the concert.
