Backstage Pass

(Rochester, NY) – Host Julia Figueras welcomes The Felix Ensemble to the Epstein Studio. Houghton College’s Greatbatch School of Music faculty members, Armenio Suzano (clarinet & saxophone), William Newbrough (piano), and Rintaro Wada (cello) come together to form a masterful trio. Backstage Pass with The Felix Ensemble airs Friday, November 15, 2019 at 1 p.m. on Classical 91.5.

Backstage Pass is a monthly live performance program which highlights performances by local and visiting musicians, giving Classical 91.5/90.3 listeners the backstage experience of meeting the artists “up close and personal.”  Several times each year, Backstage Pass is performed before a live audience of sustaining members. Backstage Pass is made possible in part by a gift from Drs. Dawn and Jacques Lipson to support performance, innovation and accessibility of the arts in the Rochester community.
