Hochstein's life story featured in new play
This year's marks one century since Rochester's David Hochstein, a virtuoso violinist and the namesake of the Hochstein School of Music & Dance, died while serving in World War I.
Before his death, Hochstein was considering opening a music school for young students in Rochester. That became a reality in 1920.
Shows are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Nov. 8-10 and 14-17, along with Nov. 11 and 18 at 2 p.m.
Playwright Stuart Loeb, director Don Bartalo and actor Reece Gurell (young David Hochstein) joined us with a preview of the play, what inspired it and what audiences can expect.
