Fall is here, and it brings a new season of lunchtime concerts on Live from Hochstein. The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra gets things started with a luminous concert, including Debussy's Afternoon of a Faun and Respighi's Three Boticelli Pictures, along with the first movement of Bizet's Symphony in C. Michael Butterman, the RPO's Principal Conductor for Education and Outreach conducts.
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.
Live from Hochstein repeats that same day at 10 p.m. on Classical 91.5, 90.3, and streaming online at wxxi.org.
