Owner description: As one of the world’s premier music schools, the Eastman School of Music has been enriching the musical life of Rochester since 1921. Today, the School presents more than 700 concerts a year in the magnificent Eastman Theatre, intimate Kilbourn Hall, and the modern Hatch Recital Hall – providing the Rochester community with an exceptional opportunity to experience world-class music in a world-class setting. The School’s rich and diverse concert season features prominent guest artists, our own acclaimed faculty, and our incredibly talented students and ensembles. No matter what type of music you prefer, you’re certain to hear it at Eastman: Classical, jazz, and opera. Symphonic and chamber music. Early music, new music, world music – there is something for everyone! The general public is welcome at all Eastman concerts and performances. Remarkably, most concerts are free; those that are not are modestly priced.

“A real treasure”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

My wife and I attended a show during the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival and LOVED it. What a beautiful facility in the heart of Rochester. The main singer was able to fill the entire space with his voice, a cappella, and it was stunning.

Opened in 1922, with funding from George Eastman, this is an incredible building affiliated with the Eastman School of Music of the University of Rochester. Home of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, the Eastman hosts a variety of other programs & performers, ranging from operas to the Rochester International Jazz Festival to high school graduations. The interior is beautiful. The acoustics are amazing.
