Alumni Weekend 2004

What a weekend it was! Over 300 Eastman alumni and friends converged on Gibbs Street to listen, learn, and play as well as to reunite, reminisce, and celebrate reunions and the centennial anniversary of the founding of the Sibley Music Library.

Take a look at the galleries to see just how much fun was had by all. Alumni who earned their degrees in years ending in 3, 4, 8, or 9 will want to be sure to visit the Reunion gallery to view class portraits.
