Eastman@Washington Square

The Eastman Community Music School is proud to present free weekly concerts featuring artists from the Eastman School of Music and ECMS. Faculty and Student Performances from both schools offer an excellent opportunity to hear some of the best musicians that Rochester has to offer and all performances are absolutely free!

Concerts take place every Thursday from late October through May at 12:15pm. This fall they will be streamed LIVE from the Eastman Campus in Sproull Atrium from October – November and in the Karen Rettner Community Music Center of Messinger Hall in December.
