Lovely building within walking distance to a parking garage (on street parking is horrible!!) I enjoyed the show I watched but the employees/volunteers(?) were wanting. I was snapped at by a woman when I was trying to take a picture of the architecture. The show was over and I was not disturbing anyone. I will go back again, but I... More

We had to go for a concert of the RPO with a family members choir accompanying them. It was an entertaining concert with nice acoustics. We were in the way up nose bleed seats since they were cheaper and I would recommend bringing binoculars to enhance your viewing experience. Wherever you look there are beautiful details and artwork on the... More

I went to see the Nutcracker Suite over Thanksgiving. The people of Rochester are extremely fortunate to have such a wonderful amenity. The show was excellent and the staff and service were impeccable. I thoroughly enjoyed this visit.

A must see for families. My sons watched in rapt attention at the young ages of 6 to13. I had four sons! There are also special holiday concerts with some having sing-a-longs. Check... More

Our daughter was at the Eastman School of Music for a lesson and to meet a Professor. The school is connected to the Eastman Theatre. The building is beautiful and very nice. Glad we were able to see it!

The Eastman is one of Rochester's landmarks and with good reason. Lovely old theatre with tons of charm. The main lobby is one of the highlights with the 12 part mural that tells the story of psyche and cupid. The main performance space is also stunning with a huge chandelier and very ornate artwork on the ceiling. If you make... More

A monument of the prosperity of Rochester and the cultural heritage. The concerts they organize are really superb and is always pleasing to be there.

Attended a symphony tonight. Excellent musicians! Everyone in Rochester has been very helpful and friendly. The ticket agent assisted us in calling a taxi. The sales clerk in the gift shop was helpful.
