Live from Hochstein: Epongue Ekille & Friends: Songs from Childhood, Wed 11/29

Violinist and Hochstein alum Epongue Ekille returns to Rochester with a program featuring music drawn from the Suzuki Violin Method, but played how they might have been performed when they were first written, complete with historic instruments. Selections include pieces by George Frideric Handel, Arcangelo Corelli, and others. Joining her are are violinist Ela Kodžas; baroque cellist Allen Maracle, another Hochstein alum, and Bonnie Choi on harpsichord.

You're invited to hear this music on Live from Hochstein on Wednesday November 29th 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.

Epongue Ekille is a historical and modern violinist based in New York City. She enjoys a versatile career having performed most recently at the Carmel Bach Festival, on the Broadway revival of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and with ensembles such as Juilliard415, the Harlem Symphony and Chamber Players, and Silentwoods Collective.

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.
