Live from Hochstein: Antara Winds

Enjoy the spring season finale of Live from Hochstein with Antara Winds (Diane Smith, flute; Judith Ricker, oboe; Margaret Quackenbush, clarinet; Blaire Koerner, bassoon; and W. Peter Kurau, horn).

You're invited to hear this music on Live from Hochstein on Wednesday, May 15th, at 12:10pm, in person at the Hochstein Performance Hall (50 N. Plymouth Avenue, downtown Rochester) or by listening to the live broadcast on WXXI Classical.

Founded in 1982, Antara Winds have appeared regularly on Live from Hochstein and have performed extensively throughout the Greater Rochester area including appearances with the Rochester Oratorio Society, Perinton Concert Band, and Society for Chamber Music in Rochester. Antara Winds delights in bringing audiences the music of contemporary composers. They have premiered two works written specifically for Antara: Verne Reynolds’ Antara Music (2003), and Libby Larsen’s Blue Windows: After Marc Chagall (2005).

Live from Hochstein with host Mona Seghatoleslami is a series of midday concerts by some of the finest artists in our area broadcast live from The Hochstein Performance Hall. Each of these free concerts runs from 12:10-12:50 p.m., giving downtown business people, teachers, families, students, and friends an opportunity to enjoy classical music by outstanding musicians, including soloists, duos, and vocal and chamber ensembles. You can also hear an encore broadcast of Live from Hochstein later the same day at 10 p.m. on WXXI Classical.
