Classical 91.5

Live music

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.

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.

Join Classical 91.5's Mona Seghatoleslami at Granite Mills Park in High Falls for Hochstein at High Falls, a free lunchtime concert series, hosted by WXXI, Hochstein School of Music & Dance and the High Falls Business Association. 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. Hochstein at High Falls is on Facebook.
