Music Educators Award – The Hochstein School

Outstanding Music Educator Award in the category of Special Award, in honor of its 100th Birthday.

Established in 1920 as The David Hochstein Memorial Music School, today The Hochstein School serves students from a 12-county region surrounding Rochester, N.Y., with offerings in music, dance, and expressive arts (music, art, and dance therapy).

Named after the late David Hochstein – an acclaimed violinist who died in action in World War I – and opened in the Hochstein family home on Joseph Avenue to 250 eager students on January 2, 1920. Hochstein now serves approximately 3,500 students each year, many supported by need-based tuition assistance. There will be performances all year long to commemorate the School’s 100th anniversary in 2020. Hochstein employs a faculty of more than 120 specialists in music, dance, and therapeutic arts who hold advanced degrees and are experienced teachers as well as active performers.

Hochstein continues its commitment to the Rochester community by offering a variety of free and low-cost concerts and performances in the Hochstein Performance Hall throughout the year. 

More than 100,000 audience members come to Hochstein each year to attend Live from Hochstein (or listen to the concerts on WXXI-FM), Spotlight on Faculty, student solo recitals, ensemble concerts, and dance and music therapy department recitals. In addition, Hochstein hosts events presented by other area arts and cultural organizations. Hochstein also collaborates with WXXI and the High Falls Business Association to perform free concerts each summer at Hochstein at High Falls.
