Welcome to the Hochstein Singers!
Our Hochstein Singers is for our older Hochstein Youth Singers (Grade 6-12) who want to sing even MORE and be additionally challenged. Hochstein Singers stay after Youth Singers’ rehearsals, take a snack break and hang around together for 30 minutes, then they rehearse from 11:30-12:30. I have much higher individual expectations for this ensemble. They learn more difficult music. They perform more… and they "PARTY" more, too.
I KNOW that our whole Hochstein Youth Singers program is a success because our older singers are a part of BOTH groups. They are the “rocks”…the leaders and the models for our Hochstein Youth Singers. When they stay and join Hochstein Singers too, they grow into friends and colleagues with each other. I LOVE to watch Hochstein Singers morph into a comfortable family unto itself! It’s not unusual now for a singer to stay in our Youth Singers’ family for nine or more years. That’s a testimony in itself to the power of a successful program, and I’m PROUD to be a part of it!
