WXXI Classical 91.5 Presents...Following the Ninth, a documentary exploring the meaning, mystery, and global impact of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, as a virtual event in partnership with The Little Theatre.

The Live from Hochstein fall concert series airs exclusively on WXXI Classical 91.5/90.3 FM and streaming at wxxiclassical.org (no live audience in the hall*) will now begin on Wednesday, November 11, 2020, from 12:10–12:50 pm.  Performances on the five-concert series feature Hochstein students, faculty members, and RPO musicians. One concert features all American composers, and another takes us on a trip to different parts of the world. The series continues through Wednesday, December 9th.  You can also hear an encore broadcast of Live from Hochstein later the same day at 10 p.m. on WXXI Classical 91.5/90.3.

Join Classical 91.5 and WXXI for a special 20-minute sneak preview of the hour-long documentary, Harbor from the Holocaust, followed by a discussion at the Virtual Little Theatre.  The film features a musical score by Composer Chad Cannon and performances by traditional Chinese guzheng player Bei Bei Monter and cellist Yo Yo Ma. 

Make Music Rochester is typically a live, free musical celebration on June 21 with concerts in a variety of spaces throughout the city. In 2020, they are going virtual, with opportunities for you to perform and to listen.
