The Hotchkiss Philharmonic
The Hotchkiss Philharmonic Orchestra was established in 2018 through the generosity of Barbara Walsh Hostetter ’77 and her husband, Amos. The orchestra combines a group of outstanding professional musicians with talented Hotchkiss music students, giving those students the unique opportunity to work and perform alongside world-class artists. Offering free admission to all of its concerts, the orchestra is thrilled to invite the community to its breathtaking concert venue, Katherine M. Elfers Hall, for a season of exciting symphonic music.
Considered one of the most distinguished Brazilian musicians of his generation, Daniel Guedes has appeared as a violinist, violist, chamber music player, teacher and conductor. In 2017 he was appointed Associate Conductor at the Barra Mansa Symphony Orchestra in Barra Mansa, state of Rio de Janeiro.
