Eastman School Faculty Concerts Give Audiences Opportunity to Hear In-Demand Artists on Local Stage

Eastman School of Music faculty members are renowned soloists and chamber musicians who fill concert halls around the world, and their recitals at the School are an important part of their performing schedules. The Eastman Faculty Artist Series, sponsored by Patricia Ward-Baker, gives local music lovers the opportunity to catch these internationally lauded artists on their home turf.

This fall, the schedule features the first series appearances by Italian-born violinist Federico Agostini, who joined the Eastman faculty this fall. Performances range from percussion to piano, from jazz trumpet to cello, and the varied days and times make it possible to find performances that fit in everyone’s schedule.

Tickets are available at the door one hour before concert time and are $10 for the general public; UR ID holders are admitted free.
