In addition to student performances, Hochstein is the home of the following programs throughout the year:
"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 free “brown bag” 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.
"Spotlight on Faculty":
Since 1991, our Spotlight on Faculty Series has served the community as a showcase for our accomplished faculty as well as offering a significant platform for artistic collaboration. This series presents programs highlighting a variety of music and dance styles from around the world throughout the season.
Join us for our Spotlight on Faculty Concert Series, celebrating the talents of Hochstein faculty performers in the acoustically beautiful and stunningly restored, historic setting of the Hochstein Performance Hall.
Each concert begins at 7:00pm, lasts about an hour, and is followed by a “meet the artists” reception. Admission is $5 per person, with a $10 family maximum.
"Hochstein at High Falls" Produced in partnership with the High Falls Business Association and WXXI
As part of High Falls district's revitalization effort, the High Falls Business Association teams up with the Hochstein School of Music and Dance and WXXI to hold a series of outdoor concerts on select Thursdays during lunch time in the summer. The concerts are held at Granite Mills Park near the Pont de Rennes Bridge, 104 Platt St. In the event of rain, concerts will be moved inside the High Falls Center.
