Welcome to the Hochstein Singers!
Hochstein Singers is for our older Hochstein Youth Singers (Grade 6-12) who want to sing even MORE and be additionally challenged. Hochstein Singers take a snack break for 30 minutes after Youth Singers’ Zoom rehearsals, then come back to work together from 11:30-12:30. I have much higher individual expectations for this ensemble. They learn more difficult music. They also perform at a higher level. Oh, 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 that!
