Founded in 1921 as the first professional school of the University of Rochester, the Eastman School of Music is one of the world’s major centers for the study of music and for the training of professional musicians and music teachers. Famous alumni include jazz greats Chuck Mangione and Ron Carter, award-winning composers Charles Strouse and Kevin Puts, and Metropolitan Opera soprano Renée Fleming. Eastman offers more than 700 concerts and other performances, many of them free, during the year, from chamber music to wind ensembles, from jazz to opera.
