Live from Hochstein: Merit Scholarship Winners in Recital

Wed, 03/26/2014 - 12:10pm - 12:50pm

Live from Hochstein returns for the spring! The first concert features selected works performed by outstanding Hochstein students: flutist Yifan Kong, cellist Annie Jacobs-Perkins, and guitarist Oksana Miller.

You can hear this program  here as an on-demand stream until the beginning of the fall season of Live from Hochstein, thanks to the artists granting permission to share their work.

WXXI and Hochstein School of Music and Dance present Hochstein Merit Scholarship Winners on March 26th at 12:10 p.m. on Classical 91.5, 90.3, and streaming online at wxxi.org.

Each spring Hochstein has a series of auditions for its students who compete for Merit Scholarship Awards. The winners of the Grades 11-12 not only receive a cash award, but the chance to perform on the Live from Hochstein spring series. This year’s winners are outstanding in their musical skills, as well as their academics. Read more about these young musicians on Hochstein's website. 

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.
