Sometimes we can get spoiled by the wealth of classical music that is available in Rochester. We can tune in Classical 91.5 or 90.3 in our homes, cars, on our computers, or take it with us on headphones. We have more concerts available to us than we can possibly attend - at Eastman School of Music, the RPO, Hochstein, Nazareth, the Memorial Art Gallery, local churches and a multitude of other venues. We have such a reach classical community that we may not even realize what great things are happening in the classical world on the other side of the globe.
Live from Hochstein returns to the airwaves of Classical 91.5 on Wednesday, March 19th at 12:10 p.m. Your new (interim) host for the Spring season will be Brenda Tremblay. Please tune in or stop by the hall at 50 N. Plymouth Avenue to enjoy the fresh new approach Brenda brings to the program. We'd love to see you there, or hear your comments about the new face of Live from Hochstein. See you there!
This is your chance to wish Mordecai well after 31 years on WXXI-FM.

Come and go as you please between these hours for a light reception of cookies and punch, and a chance to shake Mordecai's hand and wish him well in his retirement. No formal program has been planned.
From the Top is coming to Rochester on Sunday, January 20, 2008 at 3:00 p.m. in the Callahan Theater at Nazareth College. The event is almost completely sold out - with the exception of just a few Patron Tickets still available as of this writing on January 9th. However, if you can't get to the show, there are still other ways to celebrate our five Rochester Kids who will be performing that day.
