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!

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.

If you get the chance to take in a performance at the storied Eastman Theatre make sure to take advantage. It is a lasting credit to Eastman that he set up such a prestigious institution and Rochester is infinitely better for it.

I have been to many concerts at the Eastman Theatre and I have never been disappointed. First class all the way. I have been to professional concerts and many Eastman School of Music student concerts and have never been disappointed by the talent that performs here. I highly recommend the FREE student concerts!! Check out their website for a listing... More
