A sequential program for students in Grades 1-12, ranging from an introductory orchestral experience to full symphonic orchestras.
The Hochstein Orchestral Program is designed to provide students at all levels of skill with the opportunity to learn and grow within the orchestral setting, by developing comprehensive musicianship and an understanding of orchestral literature.
Serving nine counties surrounding the Greater Rochester area, the Orchestral Program offers a sequential course of study for beginning to advanced student musicians with an emphasis on technical expertise and musical expression. Focusing on the individual as well as the group, Hochstein’s program offers a positive environment in which to thrive, achieve personal goals, and have fun!
Auditions are required for all orchestras. The audition process takes place each May for the following school year. Each participant in the Hochstein Orchestral Program must maintain membership in an instrumental ensemble (if available) in his/her school.
