March 18: Hochstein Youth Symphony Orchestra
12:10-12:50pm in person at The Hochstein School and broadcast live on the radio.
Musicians from the 86-member Hochstein Youth Symphony Orchestra, directed by Casey Springstead, perform a special concert for Live from Hochstein. A full orchestra for advanced strings, brass, woodwinds, and percussion students in grades 7–12, the HYSO presents three concerts per year along with periodic international tours.
The program includes Open the Door, a short orchestral overture by American composer Gwyneth Walker, written in 1990 for The Women's Orchestra; Felix Mendelssohn’s stormy Hebrides Overture, also known as “Fingal’s Cave,” inspired by a trip to Scotland; George Enescu’s exciting Romanian Rhapsody No. 1 in A major; and a suite of John Williams’ music for the 1972 western The Cowboys, which starred John Wayne in one of his last roles.
