Live from Hochstein: Madrigalia: A Cup of Good Cheer

Our annual celebration of the holiday season with the choral chamber ensemble Madrigalia; Cary Ratcliff, artistic director.

You're invited to hear this music on Live from Hochstein on Wednesday December 7th 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.

Since 1975, Madrigalia has distinguished itself as one of the finest chamber choirs in all of Rochester and western New York. The ensemble is known for its quality performances of unique repertoire spanning over six centuries. Cary Ratcliff was appointed Madrigalia’s Artistic Director in 2014, and since that time the group has produced two recordings, collaborated with local and international artists, and premiered new works.

Madrigalia’s expansive interpretation of the December holidays includes celebrations both sparkling and thoughtful, meditations on Christmas, Hanukkah, winter, and words of hope.

Live from Hochstein with host Mona Seghatoleslami is a series 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.
