(Rochester, NY)Classical 91.5/FM-HD91.5-1 kicks off a new season of Live from Hochstein when the radio broadcast series returns Wednesday, March 23 at 12:10 p.m. with musical guests Gibbs & Main. The innovative chamber music ensemble is comprised of five professional musicians, who perform classical masterpieces side by side with Latin music and a more contemporary repertoire in both traditional and unexpected settings.

Live from Hochstein, hosted by Classical 91.5's Chris Van Hof, is the longest running live broadcast concert series in Western New York. Each week listeners hear performances by the finest artists from the Rochester area's musical community, with programs ranging from soloists and chamber ensembles to large orchestras and choirs.

The broadcasts are free and open to the public "brown bag" concerts, where business people, teachers, families, musicians, and students can spend their lunch hour enjoying classical music performed by local artists.
