Welcome to Dear Maestro.

At Rochester Symphony we have an amazing resource for our community - Maestro Jere Lantz! He's been with us for FORTY years this year. He has wisdom, artistry and vast musical knowledge to ease some of our blues through music. Each post will offer a piece of music, with a link to listen, that will inject beauty into your day - even if you're cooped up at home by yourself. Want to ask the Maestro for a music recommendation? Write to us. Tell us what's going on. Maestro Lantz will write you back and suggest some music to soothe the soul, even for just a minute or two.
