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.
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.
