"Live from Hochstein": Produced in partnership with WXXI's Classical 91.5

Hosted by Classical 91.5's Mona Seghatoleslami, Live from Hochstein is the longest running live broadcast concert series in Western New York. Broadcast live from the Hochstein Performance Hall (50 North Plymouth Ave. in Rochester), the series presents performances by some of the finest artists from the Rochester area’s musical community.

Each of these concerts runs from 12:10-12:50 p.m., giving downtown business people, teachers, families, students, and friends an opportunity to enjoy classical music during their lunch hour. (Please note that during the pandemic, Live concerts will be "audience free.")

Listen to an encore broadcast on WXXI Classical 91.5 FM at 9:00 pm the day of the concert.


The Hochstein School remains deeply grateful to Sidney & Barbara Sobel for providing continuous underwriting of Live from Hochstein since 1993.
Live from Hochstein is also made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
