Hochstein at 100

(Rochester, NY) – The Hochstein School has been a center for learning music and dance in Rochester now for 100 years. Hear the stories and music that connect this community school to the history of our city over the past century - from its origins as a settlement school to teach music to immigrant children in Rochester, through years of growth and development to suit the changing needs of Rochester’s communities, to its role today as a place to learn and experience music, dance, and more. Hosted and produced by Classcal 91.5 host Mona Seghatoleslami, Hochstein at 100 airs Wednesday, April 8 at 12 p.m. on Classical 91.5. It repeats that evening at 9 p.m.
