Event Description


 2012 EROI festival concert at Christ Church

When the Eastman School of Music opened its doors in 1921, it housed the largest and most lavish organ collection in the nation, befitting the interests of its founder, George Eastman. Mr. Eastman provided the School with opulent facilities and stellar faculty, creating an expansive vision for organ art and education in the 20th century. Over the years, the Eastman School has built on this vision by offering one of the most distinguished organ programs in the world. In keeping with this tradition of excellence, the Eastman School of Music has embarked on a long-range plan, the Eastman Rochester Organ Initiative (EROI), that will extend George Eastman’s vision into the 21st century.

With the aim of making Rochester a global center for organ performance, research, building, and preservation, the Eastman Rochester Organ Initiative of the Eastman School of Music is assembling a collection of new and historic organs unparalleled in North America. An incomparable teaching resource, this collection offers access to organs of diverse styles and traditions to talented young musicians from around the world. Tourists, scholars, and music lovers are drawn to Rochester to hear the varied sounds of these extraordinary instruments.
