Hochstein’s Centennial Gala to Benefit Need-Based Scholarships

Opening a Window

One warm spring afternoon sometime around 1906, Rochester arts patron Emily Sibley Watson heard a young David Hochstein practicing violin through an open window at her neighbor’s home. She became his benefactor, ensuring that he received the finest training available. This is the genesis of what would later become the Hochstein School of Music & Dance as we know it – providing people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities with access to excellent music and dance education in a community that nurtures and encourages personal achievement.

Save the Date! Hochstein's Centennial Gala will be held on Saturday, March 28, 2020!

Come celebrate 100 years with us! Since its founding in 1920, Hochstein's mission has focused on providing excellent music and dance education for people of any age, ability, or socioeconomic status. This event showcases Hochstein's ongoing commitment to making need-based scholarships available to those in the Greater Rochester area and includes student performances and impact stories.

Registration will open in the fall of 2019. For event information, please contact Cynthia Pacia at 585.454.4403 x223 or cynthia.pacia@hochstein.org.
