We’re all in this together.
To University of Rochester students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends
Much has transpired in our country and our community since we last wrote in solidarity with you about the grief and anger we feel about the murder of George Floyd and the relentless, centuries-long victimization of people of color through bigotry, hatred, and systemic racism. Since we wrote, we have all seen the protests and demand for change. We have seen people of all races and walks of life stand together and we have seen lawless actions to disperse these same people with violence and tear gas.
“Music has shaped my life, and teaching has been my greatest joy,” says Howard Spindler ’81E (MA), piano and music theory instructor at the Eastman Community Music School. A few months ago, prior to the pandemic, Spindler decided to include Eastman in his will.
Despite the pandemic, the Greene Center helps connects students with opportunities to pursue life and career interests.
Alumni who survived the Great Recession of 2008–09 offer advice to the Class of 2020 as they face an economy that’s playing havoc with job opportunities.
In this musical tribute, Eastman students from around the world send off their classmates with “Pomp and Circumstance.” #classof2020 #eastman2020 #ur2020 #eastmanconnects
