Live from Hochstein: Eastman Horn Choir: Holiday Music for Horns, Wed 12/6

Heralding the holidays, the Eastman Horn Choir under the direction of W. Peter Kurau, features horn players from the Eastman School of Music.

You're invited to hear this music on Live from Hochstein on Wednesday December 6th 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.

The Eastman Horn Choir was founded in 1968 by Verne Reynolds and from its inception the Choir’s mission has been to provide an expanded ensemble experience for horn students, to acquaint them with the breadth of quality repertoire within our musical culture, and to encourage contemporary composers to create original works for multiple horns.

In addition to performing an annual holiday concert at Hochstein, the Choir has been featured on the Eastman at Washington Square series, in a biennial tribute to St. Hubert (patron saint of the hunt, from which the horn derives much of its repertoire), in a formal concert in the Eastman Theatre, and on the Music at St. Andrew’s and Music at St. John’s series.

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 during the day. You can also hear an encore broadcast of Live from Hochstein later the same day at 10 p.m. on WXXI Classical.

* Masks and vaccination are encouraged but not required. Please note that only bottled water is allowed in the newly renovated hall.
