It's a pleasure to support the choral arts in Rochester by listening to inspired singing in the Classical Idol Competition, an annual fundraiser for the Rochester Oratorio Society. I've been honored to served as the emcee for several years. This year I took a few pictures from the stage. Enjoy!
Look what I found backstage the other day when I was hosting "Live from Hochstein." It's a diagram of the set up for a performance of the Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 at the Hochstein Performance Hall on Sunday, April 19th at 4:00 p.m.
What does "avant-guarde" mean in 2015? Good question. This piece on The Newshour caught my attention for a couple of reasons. First, it involves the Kronos Quartet still being amazing. Second, Rochester is absolutely ready for a music festival like this.
