100 concerts to celebrate 100 years

To celebrate the Eastman School of Music’s 100th birthday, we are calling on alumni to present 100 concerts throughout the world in a single week. The festivities will be anchored around March 3rd to celebrate the anniversary of the opening of Eastman’s Main Building in 1922. Let us know how you plan to participate with a performance between March 1 – 7, 2022, and we will add your information to this special interactive map.

Centennial performance ideas

  • Present a concert by an ensemble that you conduct. These ensembles may include:
    • Elementary/middle/high school band, orchestra, jazz and choir concerts
    • Community bands
    • Church choirs
    • Glee clubs
    • Winter guard drum line
    • New Horizons ensembles
  • Host a recital of your private lesson students
  • Hold a jam session at a local bar/restaurant/bookstore or other venue
  • Share ticket information for a concert by the professional group in which you perform
  • Perform chamber music in a home
  • Arrange a recital with other local alumni
  • Perform on a street corner, in a park, in a train station, or in any public space
  • Lectures
  • Perform your own recital
  • Livestream a performance

These performances can be live or prerecorded. If you submit a prerecorded performance, we will release it on the website on March 3, 2022. All members of the Eastman Community are welcome to submit their performances! The list above are just some ideas, so be creative; you can get a group together in person (if safe), virtually, or just go solo. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at Eastman100@rochester.edu.
