Following last week’s Eastman Presents announcement, the Eastman School of Music has revealed the lineups for its Kilbourn Concert Series and Eastman-Ranlet Series, along with the newly renamed Fernando Laires Piano Series and Barbara B. Smith World Music Series. The upcoming 2017-2018 season of these four concert series includes 17 concerts ranging from solo and chamber music recitals to dance and orchestral performances. The series features artists from four continents.
“We are proud to host performances by these outstanding artists during the 2017-18 concert season,” said Keith C. Elder, Artist Consultant at the Eastman School of Music. “These series sold out many concerts this past season and we anticipate that tickets will go quickly once again.”
Season subscriptions for all four series offer patrons the opportunity to reserve their seats before the concerts sell out. Subscriptions also save concertgoers a significant discount versus buying single tickets and are available beginning Wednesday, April 26, 2017 at noon. Any remaining single tickets will go on sale in early autumn. For more information or to subscribe, visit www.EastmanTheatre.org, call the Eastman Theatre Box Office at (585) 274-3000, or stop by 433 East Main Street in downtown Rochester.
