Kodak Hall is our largest hall, seating over 2,300 people, though at the time when it opened in 1922, it seated over 3,300. George Eastman had a unique vision for the hall: it was originally a silent film theater. Throughout its history, Eastman students have frequently shared this stage with some of the world’s greatest musicians: conductors Leonard Slatkin, Sir Georg Solti, and Christoph von Dohnányi; composers Igor Stravinsky, Krzysztof Penderecki, and John Williams; and jazz musicians Bob Brookmeyer, Stan Getz, and Keith Jarrett, to name only a few. All our large ensembles rehearse regularly and perform four concerts a semester on this stage. Our spring opera is staged in this space; past productions have included Massenet’s Cendrillon, and Don Giovanni by Mozart.
