It's been awhile since conductor Lan Shuiand violinist Stefan Jackiw have graced the stage of Kodak Hall, but they're back in town to reunite with your Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. And what a program: Barber's first orchestral work, soulful Scottish melodies from Bruch, and the rustic rhythms of Dvorak. Lan and Jackiw came to our studios to talk with Julia Figueras about the music, violins, and soccer injuries.

A Strong Memorial baby and Greece Arcadia grad, Julia Figueras was the Music Director and mid-day host for WXXI Classical until June 30, 2023 when she retired after more than 26 years of service. She also hosted the award-winning monthly interview/performance show, Backstage Pass.
