Classical 91.5

Recorder

While Live from Hochstein is on hold while can't gather in person, we have been revisiting past programs on the radio on Wednesdays, including highlights during the noon hour with Julia Figueras, and full programs at 9pm.

Our featured highlight over lunch this Wednesday comes from the intriguing, international trio Syrinx XXII, who played on Live from Hochstein this past fall.  They also took the time during that visit to meet with the local chapter of the American Recorder Society and stop by our studio for some conversation.

I was able to catch up with Katharine over email, and she collected and shared some stories of how they have been doing since they visited us in Rochester.

Syrinx XXII is a trio with an unusual, perhaps unique, combination of instruments: flutes, recorders, and piano.

They visited Rochester this week to perform on our lunchtime concert series Live from Hochstein, along with a few other performances throughout the region.  What a discovery! The way that they blend the wide range of tones and textures of their instruments into sweet and surprising music.  You can listen to that show here online. 

Band, choir, orchestra…these groups are all pretty familiar ideas. For this installment in our guide to opportunities to get involved in community music in Rochester and the surrounding region, I have for you a list of other groups, which don’t fit into such neat categories.
