A Music-Filled Day of Homecoming – 2004

The Community Music School’s annual “homecoming” — a daylong music extravaganza featuring concurrent performances by Community Music School students and ensembles — will take place Saturday, December 18th from 9:50 a.m.-5:30 p.m. in Kilbourn Hall, the Main Hall, and Howard Hanson Hall of the Eastman School of Music (26 Gibbs Street). Current and former Eastman Community Music School students, parents, and the general public are invited to experience a day of nonstop performances featuring nearly all of the Community Music School’s youth and adult ensembles. This includes, among others, the Children’s Choir, Harp Choir, Trombone Choir, Percussion Joy Ensemble, Eastman Community Vocal Jazz Ensemble, The Vintage Brass, and New Horizons Orchestra.

The Eastman Community Music School tradition, begun in 1998, has become a big event for Community Music School students and faculty. “It allows us to showcase the incredible talent and musicianship in the Community Music School, which is not always immediately known to the public,” said Howard Potter, associate dean of community education.
