Classical 91.5

Live music

Join WXXI, Classical 91.5 host Brenda Tremblay, and the WXXI Music Stand as we participate in Make Music Day, a free celebration of music around the world.

Brenda and the music stand will be parked at Granite Mills at High Falls at 11 a.m. where she’ll perform a song or two and hope you’ll join her. You can sign up for a performance time slot at the Make Music Rochester website.

Join Classical 91.5's Mona Seghatoleslami at Granite Mills Park in High Falls for Hochstein at High Falls, a free lunchtime concert series, presented by High Falls Business Association, Hochstein School of Music & Dance, WXXI, and Monroe Community College (MCC). Mona welcomes a new band to the park each week. Please note: This is a live concert series, and will not be broadcast on WXXI radio.

Concerts begin at 12:10 pm at the Granite Mills Park near the Pont de Rennes Bridge. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating and lunch, or pick up a lunch at the many area restaurants. Each performance will run approximately 50 minutes. New this year: the rain location is at MCC’s downtown campus and in the event of rain, the change in venue will be announced via social media. Note that the June 14 concert is scheduled to take place at MCC as a special campus event. 

 

On Thursday, May 24, we're inviting the community to come celebrate The Little Theatre's past, and invest in its future! The Little's historic theater 1 will be under restoration May 29 to October 1, 2018, but before the renovation, we're gathering our members, friends, and neighbors for a night of pure Little joy. 

In recognition of the significant classical music riches in Rochester, WXXI Classical 91.5 will be presenting live performances from concert halls in and around Rochester throughout April 2018.

Live from Hochstein with host Mona Seghatoleslami is a series of lunchtime concerts by some of the finest artists in our area broadcast live from Hochstein Performance Hall. 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. You can also hear an encore broadcast of Live from Hochstein later the same day at 10 p.m. on Classical 91.5.

Songs of the Valiant: Expressing Honor through Music

  This is a guest blog post by members of the Empire Film Music Ensemble, who you may have heard playing The Little Theatre before our Classical 91.5 Presents...movie screenings. This post by Claire and Grant reflect their thoughts on the music they will be playing tonight for Veteran's Day.

Throughout this afternoon and evening, music will be filling the streets around Rochester.

The first annual Make Music Rochester event is modeled after a Parisian tradition that began in 1982 as a tribute to the Summer Solstice.

Maria Furgiuele, interim executive director at the Community Design Center, is one of the organizers of the one day celebration. She recalls being in France 30 years ago and experiencing the original event that inspired it.

Accidentally hearing music can melt your heart and ignite your curiosity.  That’s a real possibility on June 21, a day of worldwide celebration of music on which all kinds of musicians – young and old, amateur and professional -- will stream into parks and streets and bridges to make music for the sheer pleasure of it.  Keep your ears peeled.
