Guitar Alumni Reunion

Guitar Alumni Reunion

Come and celebrate the 20th anniversary of Eastman’s classical guitar program! We invite you to join us to reconnect with colleagues and have the opportunity to network with outstanding graduates of this program from around the world. The alumni presentations and recital will take place in Hatch Recital Hall, the incredible new performance space at Eastman.


Please consider making your hotel reservations in advance. The Rochester Plaza Hotel and Conference Center is the preferred hotel for the reunion weekend, and a special rate is being offered for guitar alumni. Please note that this is a change from what was listed in the Eastman Weekend registration booklet.

For reservations, please call the Rochester Plaza at (585) 546-3450 or toll free (866) 826-2831.
