New Eastman Wing Celebration

Almost 90 years ago, industrialist George Eastman envisioned a world-famous music school for a world-famous university. The University of Rochester's Eastman School of Music opened in 1921 and became internationally renowned. But Eastman's original plan for the space it would occupy was never completely fulfilled--until now.

From Dec. 6 to 12, the Eastman School celebrated the culmination of its multi-year construction project, and the realization of Eastman's original dream for the School, when it opened the new Eastman East Wing at East Main and Swan Streets.
