Pittsford Students Selected for 2022-23 Hochstein Youth Symphony Orchestra

MHS students SHS students

Fourteen students from Mendon and Sutherland high schools were selected to be members of the 2022–23 Hochstein Youth Symphony Orchestra, the highest-level youth orchestra in The Hochstein School’s four-tier youth orchestra program. Students compete annually for a seat in the orchestra, performing professional repertoire in at least three concerts throughout the school year. The HYSO’s first concert of the year is on Sunday, November 13 at 3:00 pm in the newly renovated Hochstein Performance Hall. The program includes Brahms’ “Academic Festival Overture,” Sibelius’ “Romance in C,” Mussorgsky’s “Night on Bald Mountain,” Berceuse and Finale from Stravinsky’s “The Firebird,” and Márquez’s “Danzon No. 2.”
