The NPR program From the Top iscoming to Rochester to tape a show on March 19th at Eastman's Kodak Hall, and I've been interviewing a few musicians with Rochester connections who have played on the show.
You'll find a few pianos out and about around Rochester this month - and you're allowed (encouraged, even!) to play them. They're part of the Pianos for Peace project, which you can read and hear more about in this radio feature by WXXI News intern Sarah Tembeckjian. I saw one of the pianos this week at the Rochester Public Market, and I snapped a few photos.
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.
