50th Reunion Gift

Our 50th Reunion offers us a unique opportunity to participate in a very special 50th Reunion class gift.  The Eastman School’s 50th Reunion classes of 1959 and 1960 will have the first opportunity to name a seat in the Hatch Recital Hall, located in the striking new School expansion.  Fifty seats are currently “saved” for our 50th Reunion class until September 1st before being made available to others. A pledge of $1,000 – payable over a 2-year period – will allow you to name a seat for yourself, a favorite professor, or someone you’d like to honor. Members of the 50th Reunion class who pledge $1,000 to support the Eastman Fund (can be payable over two years) will have the opportunity to have a dedicate a  seat in Hatch Recital Hall with an inscribed nameplate. For more information, please call the Eastman School Advancement office at 585.274.1040 or email
