October 8-11, 2015
We invite you to join us at the Eastman School of Music this fall for Meliora Weekend at Eastman, our alumni reunion and family weekend. It will be a weekend full of exciting programming: concerts, lectures, tours, and much more. Meliora Weekend features events throughout the University of Rochester, with the majority of Eastman’s events taking place on October 9 and 10.
Headlining the entertainment is Emmy- and Tony Award-winner Kristin Chenoweth, who will perform at the Eastman Theatre as part of the Eastman Presents series on October 9.
Renowned author and biographer Walter Isaacson will deliver Meliora Weekend’s keynote address on October 10. Isaacson’s 2011 book, Steve Jobs, is being adapted into a major motion picture directed by Academy Award-winner Danny Boyle.
The Brass Cavalcade, which features Eastman’s brass ensembles: the Horn Choir, the Trombone Choir, Tuba Mirum, Trumpet Ensemble, and the Brass Guild, will perform several compositions by honored alumnus Eric Ewazen ’76 (BM) on October 10.
That evening, Neil Varon will conduct ESSO in Smetana’s The Moldau, and the Philharmonia in Bacri’s Piccolo Concerto Notturno and Brahms’ Symphony No. 2.
Registration for Meliora Weekend events will begin in late August.
We look forward to welcoming you to campus each year for this beloved Rochester tradition.
