The actors in the play were on point for PhDs- I thought they were Broadway actors. No matter where you are, the view is great and the sound is impeccable. In the theater was returned to the Eastman School for use as a concert hall. The story was reported in the Campus Times alas, without photographs and in the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, with slight variations on the theme of the quantity of missiles.

The attention-getting opening, for example, was followed by a delicately inflected account of the first theme and its development. If you get obstructed view seats, they are cheaper.

A super venue that is centrally located - a real gem. For a city of this size we are lucky to have such top-notch performers playing in a great hall like the Eastman.

Rochester, NY Iconic. A community treasure and a top tier orchestra. Her cadenza in the first movement was breathtaking. A question for Melissa Mead, the John M.

The orchestra has always been top-notch with the Eastman School associated with it, how could it not. If you weren't lucky enough to catch the tour, Parris and Horowitz team up to deliver a stunning performance of "Defying Gravity" to close the first half of the evening.

Parking in convenient with access for event parking at the lot on the corner of Gibbs and E. Rick Faugno is probably known best as a song-and-dance man, having won the Fred Astaire Dance Award as Porter in On the Twentieth Century on Broadway and being known on-and-off Broadway for his virtuosic tap dancing skills.
