Join us for the first-ever concert of the self-proclaimed “Quarantined Quartet” made up of husband and wife Jason and Elysa Hochman, both professional musicians who own New York Guitar Academy in Manhattan, and the couple’s two sons, Joseph, 10, and Noah, 8. The family of four has spent countless hours jamming out during the pandemic and will be debuting their incredible talents at Hill-Stead.
Native New Yorkers with an Argentine and Mediterranean flair, the dynamic acoustic guitar world-fusion duo, best known as Jay & Lee Rumba Flamenca specializes in Spanish, Flamenco, and Classical guitar. Now a fantastic foursome, the musicians, who are making waves in the national media, will perform a robust repertoire of original compositions with unique arrangements of renowned Spanish Classical and Nuevo Flamenco guitar pieces.

From the Porch, Hill-Stead’s new multicultural performing arts series is a diverse and dynamic showcase featuring music, dance, theater, and more. Building on the success of Hill-Stead’s indoor events and nationally acclaimed Sunken Garden Poetry Festival, the inclusive summer programming will take place on our 152-acre campus. The experiential events will happen several nights per week and be open to audiences of all ages.
