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.

Met @ the Movies! What an Experience! You Gotta Go!

For two years I have been singing the praises of the Metropolitan Opera's LIVE HD broadcasts at local movie theaters (Met @ the Movies) based upon the input of folks who had attended. Then, last night I had my first chance to experience it at Tinseltown Theater on Buffalo Road. WOW!! Everything they said is true, and so much more.
