The Path of the Musician

I just finished an article for the Rochester Philharmonic Youth Orchestra's newletter about musical entrepreneurship.  I soon found myself being reminded of how we musicians "do it" to make a living.

Live from Hochstein welcomes new host & rebroadcast!

Today Classical 91.5 and the Hochstein Music School welcomed Chris Van Hof as the new host of Live from Hochstein.  Chris began learning the ropes from temporary host Brenda Tremblay, and very quickly was ready to take the reins.  Today, Chris welcomed the Kilbourn Saxophone Quartet to the Hochstein stage for a program of 20th Century music.  Listeners heard Jack Marshall's Goldrush Suite, Astor Piazzola's Cafe 1930, and Faustin & Maurice Jeanjean's Quatour pour Saxophones.
