"I love the creative community that is all the many aspects of Hochstein from music to dance, young to old, jazz to classical. A wonderful place for children to immerse themselves in the creative arts."

About Our Ensembles

Hochstein's ensemble program draws from a rich history that started with the original Hochstein String Quartet in the 1920s and has grown into the comprehensive program in existence today. Hochstein's ensemble program includes four student orchestras, three wind symphonies/bands, three vocal ensembles, jazz combos, rock and Dixieland bands, and a myriad of chamber and instrument-specific ensembles.

Ensemble experiences not only take students' musical skills to the next level, but they instill confidence while building collaborative skills and camaraderie among our students. 


Hochstein programs are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
The Hochstein Orchestra and Chamber Music Programs are supported in part by the Louise Alfreda Hill Memorial Fund.

Hochstein's Chamber Music programs have  been made possible, in part, with support from ACMP Associated Chamber Music Players.
