CLASSICAL | RPO Live from Hochstein


The Hochstein School of Music's free, live "brown-bag" concerts on Wednesdays have been a staple of Rochester music, and lunchtimes, for decades. The 2015-16 schedule begins next Wednesday, October 7, as it always does, with a presentation by the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. Music director Ward Stare will no doubt confirm the good impression he made two weeks ago in his opening concert of the RPO; this time he'll be conducting Mendelssohn's Third Symphony, the "Scottish." If Stare and the orchestra continue to produce the plush sound they did on their opening night, this performance of the lushest of Mendelssohn's symphonies should be a treat. The concert will be broadcast live on WXXI-FM, introduced by Mona Seghatoleslami. (The Hochstein School of Music website includes the entire fall noon-time concert schedule.)

The RPO Live at Hochstein will take place Wednesday, October 7, at Hochstein Performance Hall, 50 North Plymouth Avenue. 12:10 p.m. Free. Simulcast on WXXI-FM Classical 91.5.;
